New insight into a central biological dogma on ion transport

New research results from Aarhus University and New York University show how active transport of potassium can be achieved by a membrane protein complex that has roots in both ion pump and ion channel super-families. The results, which have just been published in Nature, shed new light on what define channels and pumps.

Charlotte Rohde Knudsen and Anja Pen awarded teaching prizes

Charlotte Rohde Knudsen and Anja Pen were awarded the prizes as teacher of the year and the student teacher of the year 2017, respectively, at the Annual Meeting of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics on Friday 16 June 2017.

[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.

A mutation giving leaves with white spots has been identified

Garden and potted plants with white spots on their leaves are so popular that they are specially selected for this feature. An international research team has now identified a new mutation in the plant Lotus japonicus which gives leaves with white spots. These results could be important for the improvement of garden and potted plants.

Researchers recreate wild crops for the beer of the future

Over thousands of years, barley and wheat have been bred to such an extent that the yield has been greatly improved, but the crops have also lost a number of properties that are important to survive in the wild. A new Danish research project will restore the original properties of crops to make them more robust.
