Dissemination of research results

The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics publishes regularly articles to various media (newspapers, TV, online media) with results from the department in connection with the publication of some of the staff's scientific articles.

In connection with their PhD defence, the students make a popular description of their research for the media.

In addition, several researchers actively participate in debates in the media and produce science articles and books.


Research news

[Translate to English:] Bioøkonomien, der baserer sig på biologiske frem for fossile råvarer, er en væsentlig del af den cirkulære økonomi, og her står Aarhus Universitet særligt stærkt gennem forskningsmæssige styrker på Science and Technology. Derfor etableres nu Center for Cirkulær Bioøkonomi, der har det klare mål at sikre synergi og tværfaglige projekter indenfor forskningen på området, samt at styrke samarbejdet med nationale og internationale virksomheder og organisationer inden for den biobaserede økonomi.
En forudsætning for den biobaserede økonomi er, at der udvikles bioraffineringsteknologier og produktionssystemer, som er bæredygtige i både økonomisk og miljømæssig betydning.
Samlet set skal aktiviteterne i det nye center medvirke til, at der etableres nye virksomheder og forretningsområder inden for den biobaserede økonomi, herunder til at producere og markedsføre nyt dansk protein til både husdyr og fødevareproduktion.
Aarhus Universitet råder over unikke faciliteter til dyrkning af biomasse på land og i havet. Mulighederne er mange, og der er eksempelvis allerede stor vækst og eksport inden for bioenergiteknologi og muligheder for at udbygge med teknologi til udnyttelse af f.eks. græs, kløver, alger og muslinger.

Illustration of a rationally designed 3D RNA nanostructure during cotranscriptional folding: The domains of the single-stranded RNA origami nanostructure (rainbow colors) fold sequentially as the newly synthesized RNA emerges from the transcription bubble inside the T7 RNA polymerase (transparent grey surface). In the illustration the T7 RNA polymerase moves left along the DNA (light blue) and the 3’-end of the RNA base pairs with the template strand in the transcription bubble.
