Presentation at Goldschmidt 2018, Boston

Anne and her colleague from the Department of Chemistry, Annie Vera Hunnestad, presented the results of their collaboration at the Goldschmidt 2018 Conference in Boston, USA. The Goldschmidt conference is the foremost international conference on geochemistry and it was therefore very interesting to approach iron acquisition in Synechococcus sp. PCC7002 from a biogeochemistry standpoint. The presentation was followed by a…

Anne at ICMP in Vancouver

Anne has presented her research in a 15 minute presentation together with her colleague Annie Vera Hunnestad from the Department of Chemistry at NTNU at the International Conference for Molecular Photosynthesis (ICMP) in Vancouver. This conference is organized by the ISPR. The presentation was followed by a lively discussion about iron acquisition strategies and conductive type IV pili.

Anne at ePS-1

Anne participated in the First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research (ePS-1) and the ePS-Young in Uppsala, Sweden. She presented her research with a poster and a presentation. Many participants were interested in her research, which led to interesting discussions. In addition, these meetings were a good opportunity for reconnecting with old colleagues and starting new collaborations.

Visit to University of Plymouth

Anne stayed with the group of Professor Matthias Futschik at the University of Plymouth in the UK during the last three weeks in order to learn RNAseq analysis with bioinformatic tools such as R. We hope to get better insight into iron acquisition of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 with the research methods Anne learned. Read more about Matthias’ research here.
