MBD researchers at The Genome Analysis Centre (UK)

Over the course of last week, Kenneth Meland, Francisca Carvalho and Joana Xavier participated in an intensive training course at The Genome Analysis Centre in Norwich (UK). This course focused on the molecular and analytical aspects of genotype-by-sequencing (GBS) methods, and guided the participants all the way from the study design and strategy through the computational pipelines and results interpretation. The acquired skills will be used in several projects currently ongoing at the Marine Biodiversity Group, which will be conducted using the NGS facilities in the Biodiversity Lab (BDL).

Tuesday 10th of May seven master students from the Marine BioDiversity (MBD) research group presented their projects during a mini symposium. The students presented a broad range of topics ranging from management, deep-sea ecology, biodiversity, taxonomy, systematics, evolution, to functional morphology. They were a mixed group from newly started- to close to the deadline for delivery-students. Still, while some students found it useful as practice for the soon-to-come master’s exam, others used the opportunity to sort and share ideas and thoughts before the start of the project.

Photo of the week – Week 17: The bioCEED survey


The bioCEED Survey 2015 was conducted as a baseline study of major tertiary-level biology education in Norway. The survey addresses themes such as learning in practice, transferable skills, motivation, laboratory and field learning, didactical approaches specifically relevant to biology education, knowledge needs and experiences of biologists in the workforce, etc
