Anne’s latest video about how useful and interesting microorganisms are, has recently been featured on the NTNU Facebook page. You can watch the video here. This video was produced as a part of the course “Communicating Scientific Research” in which Anne participated successfully.
Alex and Swapnil presented the most updated work about the microfluidics platform for functional metagenomic screening. The poster was well-received by the scientific community which increased the chances of further collaborations.

Anne just returned from a very productive visit to the University of Oslo. Together with her Co-supervisor Hanne Winther-Larsen, she took SEM and TEM images from the different Synechococcus sp. PCC7002 strains to investigate the state of the pilins in wildtype and mutant strains. The images turned out to be very interesting and will be published soon.
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.
