Microbial interactions and plant growth Ny
In the project, we investigate how protozoan predation affects bacterial community composition, nutrient turnover and plant growth. Contact Flemming Ekelund (email@example.com) or Nikolaj Kindtler (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Targeting membrane repair processes in cancer cells Ny
• Plasma membrane repair as a potential target to eliminate cancer cells. • Exploring the role of calcium binding proteins in membrane repair using CRISPR modified cancer cells. • Cell handling, microscopy, FACS, protein analysis.
Regulated intracellular protein degradation to counter disease Ny
Write a project on Soil biodiversity and function (Bsc or MSc)
At the SECTION OF MICROBIOLOGY, we are working to understand and exploit the immense functional diversity and adaptive potential of natural microbial communities using cutting-edge molecular techniques
Discovery of bacterial defense systems
The identification and functional characterization of new defense systems is crucial to understand gene flow across microbiomes.
Interpretation of Parabasalid DNA reads in pig facael samples as detected by metabarcoding
Write a project in collaboration with Statens Serum Institute (SSI)
The role of the biofilm matrix in the productivity and protection of bacterial communities
When biofilms consist of multiple interacting species, community-intrinsic properties emerge. Researching how these community-based bacteria orchestrate their behavior has revolutionized the field of microbiology.
Greenhouse gas emission from plants and soil analysed by concentration and isotope methods Ny
The thermal window for aerobic scope in shallow water marine bivalves Ny
Low oxygen are common in the marine environment. When low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. The thermal window for aerobic scope is equally important to study as it sets the limits for normal activity.
Invasive mussel in freshwater ecosystems - dispersal, current distribution and impact Ny
The Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) is well establishing outside its origin in the Black Sea and continues to spread in Europe and N. America. You can contribute to our knowledge on dispersal, density, behaviour and impact.
