The Novo Nordisk Foundation has awarded the prestigious Hallas-Møller Scholarship valued at DKK 11 million to Thomas Birkballe Hansen to study which role so-called circular RNAs play in cells and their potential impact on neurological disorders. The project will be carried out at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics/iNANO, Aarhus…

New research reveals the mechanism behind a cancer-relevant inhibition of human sugar transporting protein. The hope is that this will guide future drug design targeting sugar uptake mechanisms. This will ultimately lead to progress in a number of important common conditions, such as diabetes and cancer.

Danish researchers have discovered that mitochondria from mistletoe contain only 10 genes. This discovery will ultimately lead to a better understanding of how mitochondria function and not least how the interaction between parasite and host functions. This discovery could be very important if we can use the knowledge to fight the massive loss of…

Assistant professor Ebbe Sloth Andersen from MBG and iNANO has received EUR 2 million from the European Research Council (ERC). This grant will help him bring biological nanostructure research into a new phase in the field of synthetic biology – a field which may ultimately have enormous significance for the medicine, energy, food and agriculture…

The human genome is promiscuously transcribed yielding RNA from >75% of its DNA, and throughout the years, researchers world-wide have tried to find out how much of this material is functional. Danish researchers have now received a prestigious grant from the Lundbeck Foundation to address this problem.

Traditionally it has been thought that only a few percent of our genome plays a role. Research has previously focused on the coding DNA, but also areas outside the focus area may have an impact. Scientists are starting to sort out the huge pile of genetic material called non-coding RNA.
