Climate-smart African rice
Hjælp os med at finde egenskaber hos ris så denne vigtige afgrøde tåler både oversvømmelse og tørke - det er helt nødvendigt hvis Afrika skal kunne tackle klimaforandringerne og sikre fødevarer til alle.
Oxyregulation capacity (Pcrit) at different temperatures in the shrimp (Crangon crangon) Ny
Low oxygen is common in the marine environment. Knowledge on when low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. Low oxygen acts in concert with temperature and this dependency is equally important to study.
Anti-CRISPR mechanisms of bacteriophages and archaeal viruses Ny
How viruses deal with host CRISPR immunity?
CO2 capture by photosynthetic microorganisms in environments with high CO2 Ny
Photosynthetic microbes consume the CO2 released by human activities. However, these microbes are inhibited if the CO2 content is too high. This project identifies biological solutions to this problem.
Host specificity of moss-associated cyanobacteria Ny
Finding the moss factor. Why are some moss species more colonized by nitrogen fixing bacteria than others?
Heavy metal effects on moss-associated N fixation Ny
Nitrogen fixation performed by free-living or plant-associated bacteria is a crucial N (N) source. But this source is under pressure due to global change, in particular, pollution by heavy metals in many different ecosystems
Climate change effects on moss-associated N fixation Ny
What will a future climate bring for mosses, associated cyanobacteria and their nitrogen fixation activity?
Enzyme design and evolution Ny
We work on elucidating the mechanism of catalysis and regulation of enzymes in processing of glycoproteins and proteases (HIV protease).
Structure and function of membrane proteins in detergent-free systems Ny
This project aims at developing a framework for detergent-free isolation of integral membrane proteins from their cell membranes for customized isolation and characterization in their native environments.
Prophages: Ticking time bombs or key genetic elements in bacterial hosts? Ny
All bacteria contain prophages, which are genomes of viruses that are integrated into the genomes of their bacterial hosts. They can be induced and kill the host, but can also encode virulence factors that promote host performance
