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.

Danish discovery can pave the way for more effective cholesterol medicine

Research from Aarhus University sheds new light on how the body converts the bad kind of cholesterol. The discovery could lead to new and potentially more effective medicine.

Improved solution to increase fertility in high-yielding cows

Through decades, researchers have been able to increase milk production in cows by intense genetic selection. However, this has resulted in a reversal of the fertility of the cows. This has led the researchers to find an optimum solution.

Chromosomal deletion catalogue in dairy cattle facilitates the identification of lethal mutations

Genetic mutations are responsible for a substantial yearly-economic loss in the dairy industry. Mapping of such variants is essential for effective breeding planning and performance improvement.

Confocal microscopy image of the murine bronchiolar wall after administration of chitosan/fluorescently-labelled siRNA nanoparticles. Nuclei are stained red, and the fluorescently-labelled siRNA is stained green. The green signal indicates that the siRNA is captured in the mucous on the apical (luminal) side of the epithelium.
