Mathematical and Theoretical Ecology in Umeå

2017-05-11
Theoretical and mathematical ecology is an interdisciplinary field, where scientists cooperate across borders to further our understanding of ecology an evolution by building conceptual and mathematical models. In this workshop, researchers from the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statist...

Chemistry world: Fish on valium

2017-05-08
What are the consequences of unintentionally medicating wildlife against anxiety and depression? Imagine what happens when, as has been extensively shown, that Prozac type of psychiatric medicine makes it into the wild. For Jonatan Klaminder, an ecologist at Umeå University in Sweden, it’s straightf...

Pathogenic bacteria train their defence in lakes and oceans

2017-05-04
Peter Mathisen at Umeå University has found links between the aquatic environment and the spreading of diseases such as tularaemia. The results indicate that aquatic environments act as “gyms” for bacteria, where the presence of predators train their defence against being killed and eaten up. The re...

You and I can help climate researchers in Abisko

2017-04-27
A new citizen science project in Abisko aims to teach the public how we do climate change science while collecting valuable data. CIRC researcher Keith Larson will receive nearly SEK 500,000 for an outreach project centred on the establishment of a research trail. This Formas grant is the second of ...

Upcoming deadlines for funding calls at SciLifeLab

2017-04-25
SciLifeLab now welcomes applications for National Projects (Swedish Genomes Program 2017 and Swedish Biodiversity Program 2017) and for Bioinformatics Long-term support.

New study emphasizes the relative scarcity of lake water

2017-04-12
What is the volume of water in lakes on Earth? Using a mathematical analysis, researcher David Seekell, at Umeå University, and his American collaborators now suggest that the mean depth of lakes is 30 per cent lower than previously estimated. Shallower lakes implies less fresh water and has consequ...

PH-sensitive binding mechanism key to virulence of H. pylori

2017-03-17 (from 2017-03-08)
To thrive and establish chronic infection in the very acidic stomach, the gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori uses a specific protein to attach to the protective pH-neutral mucous lining. New research shows how the BabA adhesin protein has a pH-responsive mechanism allowing H. pylori to rapidly det...

Workshop on Mass spectrometry based Protein/Proteomic analysis in Umeå

2017-03-14
Welcome to the workshop on Mass spectrometry based Protein/Proteomic analysis in Umeå! The KBC Proteomics Core Facility invites to discuss about protein analysis and mass spectrometry.

Renens betydelse i ett föränderligt klimat

2017-03-06
The importance of the reindeer in an ever changing climate - Researchers at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science present their research during Sami Week.

Frozen chemistry controls bacterial infections

2017-03-03
Chemists and molecular biologists have made an unexpected discovery in infection biology. The researchers can now show that two proteins that bind to one another slow down a chemical reaction central to the course of the disease in the bacteria Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. The results have been publ...
