DEEP PURPLE on the ice: algae are heating up Greenland

Purple algae are making the western Greenland Ice Sheet melt faster, as the algae darken the ice surface and make it absorb more sunlight. With an ERC Synergy Grant of €11 million, researchers from Aarhus University and two other European universities will examine the role of glacier algae in a warming climate.

Fruit flies help in the development of personalised medicine

It is common knowledge that there is a connection between our genes and the risk of developing certain diseases. In a study on fruit flies, researchers from Aarhus University and Aalborg University have found that gene mapping can also be used to predict response to a given treatment. This knowledge is crucial for the development of personalised…
