Erland and Anne at SYNBIOSYS summer school

Erland and Anne attended the PhD summer school SYNthetic BIOlogy: From pro- to eukaryotic SYStems (SYNBIOSYS) at the Copenhagen Plant Science Center in Denmark. During this summer school, they discussed the idea of synthetic biology as a new approach to genetic research: using standardization, modularity and abstraction to create new biological systems. In order to combine the theoretical background with…

Visit to SB 7.0 in Singapore

Martin and Anne participated in the seventh internation meeting on synthetic biology (SB 7.0) in Singapore. Anne presented her poster ‘Streamlining recombination-mediated genetic engineering in Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 by validating three neutral integration sites’ which is accessible via this link. A program of the meeting can be found here.

New paper published

Anne, Rahmi and Martin published a paper with the titel ‘Streamlining recombination-mediated genetic engineering by validating three neutral integration sites in Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002′. The paper is published in the Journal of Biological Engineering and it presents the results of their work on neutral integration sites in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002. The open-access paper can be found…

Lab trip to Røros

This year, we decided to visit the beautiful city of Røros. We started with some sightseeing in the city centre, had a Norwegian lunch and then we visited the copper mine Olavsgruva to learn more about the mining history of Røros. We concluded the lab trip with a nice dinner at Skanckebua where we discussed future lab trips.
