From Genes to Ecosystem: EuroMarine General Assembly in Bremen

13.01.2012
More than 100 international scientists of the EU multidisciplinary marine network EuroMarine meet on 17 January for three days in Bremen. The aim of the conference is to reach better integration of marine science in Europe.

A multidisciplinary approach will help to understand the interactions between genes, organisms and ecosystems, including their response to human activity and climate. A key challenge is to ensure that this wealth of knowledge is made available to anyone interested.

Dr Stephane Pesant from the MARUM in Bremen says: “ The EuroMarine network will establish common services and tools to train and support a new generation of scientists that can specialize in one field and still be literate-in and connected-to the fields of genomics, biodiversity and ecosystem research.”-

This two year EuroMarine project is supported in the Bremen State by the Centre for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM), the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology and the Alfred Wegener Institute for polar and marine science, together with many universities and research institutions from Sweden, Portugal, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and Belgium, and is coordinated by the University of Gothenburg.

For interviews please contact Manfred Schloesser. On Wednesday, 18 January 2012, after the opening ceremony starting at 14:00 we are pleased to welcome journalists at the Atlantic Hotel Universum (http://www.atlantic-hotels.de/universum)

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
