Coincidentally(?), the rocket on the students' t-shirts tied in rather nicely with the Dean's speech, which linked the Open Science platform with the research behind the Apollo 11 mission. In this photo, the students are listening to lead materials specialist Allan Hjarbæk Holm from Grundfos, who is talking about the Grundfos group's long-term goals and expectations in connection with Open Science.

New nuclear RNA retention activity discovered

Gene expression involves mRNA transport from its place of synthesis to the cytoplasm where protein translation occurs. However, many non-coding RNA species do not follow this flow and new data now demonstrate how cells prevent the unwanted export of RNA and instead ensure nuclear degradation.

Voltage loss in cable bacteria

An international research group has shed new light on cable bacteria. Using laser light, researchers have followed electrons as they travel through the current-conducting bacteria, and on the basis of the electrical potential in the bacteria, they have calculated that the bacteria because of voltage loss cannot function efficiently at depths…

ST to consolidate Aarhus activities on campus and at Katrinebjerg

The framework for Aarhus University's physical development in the years ahead was presented at a mass meeting on 2 May 2018. For ST, this means that, after a long wait, the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics will be consolidated in University City; it means moving from Kalø and Silkeborg and gathering life-science activities in the…
