Flashing comb jellyfish - why and how? New
Many marine species - perhaps the majority - are bioluminescent. Much of the biology and biochemistry surrounding the function and chemistry of this phenomenon remain a mystery.
Luciferases - structure, function and biotechnology New
Luciferases are enzymes that catalyze reactions that result in emission of a photon. Although they are widespread in nature and are biotechnologically important we know surprisingly little about how these enzymes work.
Designing new enzyme activities de novo New
Designing enzymes that catalyze new reactions has major potential for development of new greener approaches to chemistry. As an example, enzymes that degrade plastics or toxic compounds could have major benefits.
Food supply chain waste valorisation New
Market price of food waste derived high value products. Seeking a dedicated MSc with interest in sustainability assessment of innovative solutions for food waste prevention and valorisation.
Sustainability assessment of seaweed protein products New
Sustainability assessment of local Nordic seaweeds for the production of protein products.
Sustainability assessment of the use of seaweed as a feed supplement New
Climate friendly meat and dairy products obtained by reducing enteric fermentation in livestock production
LCA of innovative solutions of food loss and waste valorisation opportunities New
Closing the loop along the food supply chain – sustainability assessment of sidestream valorisation technologies/solutions
Genetic dissection of epigenetic gene repression New
This is a plant molecular biology project focusing on tandem Transcriptional Interference (tTI). During that project, you will learn how to grow plants on soil and media, genotype them, and do ruthenium red staining.
Shelf-life optimization of mycoprotein-based alternative TEMPTY New
Tempty Foods's vision is to create products that support sustainable eating habits and are a good choice in terms of both environmental impact and nutrition. The scope is to determine conditions for optimal shelf life of TEMPTY.
