Organelle DNA is less protected than nuclear DNA and the risk of mutations could be high. How do eukaryotic organelles avoid the gradual buildup of deleterious mutations in the organelle DNA until function is lost?
Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation.
Mucus is a viscoelastic material which protects epithelial surfaces from the external environment. The functions of mucus are usually described as protection, lubrication, and transport , and in all these cases the physico-mechanical properties of the mucus are vital for function. But how does the presence of bacteria affect the function of the mucus?
Diatoms is a group of unicellular eukaryotic microalgae. Due to their high lipid content they can be used as fish feed in aquaculture or generation of biofuels/bioplastics. How can the CRISPR/Cas gene editing system be used to develop strains of diatoms that are better suited for growth in bioreactors?
How-to generate a data management plan for a Life Science research project that will meet the requirements of the funding organisations?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is often mentioned as the solution to many of our future challenges, also within healthcare, and in January 2020 the Norwegian Government launched a National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence. What role could AI play in cancer diagnostics? How should diagnoses be set in the future, and which new questions might arise when introducing new technologies?
Doctoral candidate Julia Anna Weikum at the Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, is defending the thesis "Bacterial protein systems at the membrane interface: Structural and biophysical studies of the E.coli adhesion receptor intimin and the magnesium transporter MgtA" for the degree of Philosophiae Doctor.

NCMM's annual national PhD course in molecular medicine will feature a number of talks from leading researchers. Please note that the course will now take place entirely online.
In response to the Covid-19 emerging as a global pandemic in March, NTNU formed an interdisciplinary team to develop an epidemiological model and provide additional insights on risk factors and strategies for mitigation. This lecture, by Andrè Voigt, will give insight into this work.
Dr. Juho Rousu, Professor in Computer Science, Aalto University, Finland, will present the lecture "Machine Learning of Drug Combination Responses."
This course is for all PhD students and postdoctors who want to learn more about working on transdisciplinary research projects within biotechnology and the life sciences.
Do you often stumble upon new concepts and topics that fascinates you, but miss someone to explore and discuss them with? Then the Digital Life Reading Club might be something for you
The 10th annual Nordic EMBL Partnership conference will be hosted by MIMS, Umeå. The conference will take place online.
Dr. Shaun Mahony, Assistant Professor, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Department, Penn State University, USA, will present the lecture "Using neural networks to characterize the predeterminants of induced transcription factor binding sites."
Join the annual conference made for and by the research school members!
