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.

EU – H2020 funding

Our lab received its first EU – H2020 funding. The project, “Advanced toolbox for rapid and cost-effective functional metagenomic screening – microbiology meets microfluidics” coordinated by the University Autonoma de Madrid, received funding for €8.808.363. Rahmi is involved as a partner in the project. For further details see the EU-CORDIS web page.
