Salmon farming in the future must navigate conflicting and shifting demands of sustainability, shifting feed prices, disease, and product quality. The industry needs to develop a flexible, integrated basis of knowledge for rapid response to new challenges. The Digital Salmon will be an ensemble of mathematical descriptions of salmon physiology, combining mathematics, high-dimensional data analysis, computer science and measurement technology with genomics and experimental biology into a concerted ...

LiSyM (Liver Systems Medicine) represents a research network of German centers and institutions, brought together by a 20 Million Euro funding program of the German Government, in which mathematicians, modelers, pharmacologists, molecular biologists and clinical scientists work together to develop a Systems Medicine approach to study early and advanced liver disease. The aim of this unique research program is to acquire and use new experimental data and data from existing data bases to build ...
Projects: Early Metabolic Injury (LiSyM-EMI - Pillar I), Chronic Liver Disease Progression (LiSyM-DP - Pillar II), Regeneration and Repair in Acute-on-Chronic Liver Failure (LiSyM-ACLF - Pillar III), LiSyM Core Infrastructure and Management (LiSyM-PD), Liver Function Diagnostics (LiSyM-LiFuDi - Pillar IV), Model Guided Pharmacotherapy In Chronic Liver Disease (LiSyM-MGP), Multi-Scale Models for Personalized Liver Function Tests (LiSyM-MM-PLF), The Hedgehog Signalling Pathway (LiSyM-JGMMS), Molecular Steatosis - Imaging & Modeling (LiSyM-MSIM), FAIRDOM & LiSyM & de.NBI Data Structuring Training, New LiSyM project

The goal of the dCod-project is to combine the competencies in environmental toxicology, biology, bioinformatics and mathematics across the traditional department boundaries, to create a deeper understanding of cods' adaptations and reactions to stressors in the environment. Building on the thoroughly studies and mapping of the cod genome at UiO and the long research traditions on cod at the Department of Biology at UiB, the dCod project will expand our knowledge with methods based on genomics; ...

FAIRDOM is establishing a support and service network for European Systems Biology. FAIRDOM is a joint action of ERA-Net ERASysAPP and European Research Infrastructure ISBE to establish a data and model management service facility for Systems Biology. Our prime mission is to support researchers, students, trainers, funders and publishers by enabling Systems Biology projects to make their Data, Operating procedures and Models, Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).

SysMO is a European transnational funding and research initiative on "Systems Biology of Microorganisms".
The goal pursued by SysMO was to record and describe the dynamic molecular processes going on in unicellular microorganisms in a comprehensive way and to present these processes in the form of computerized mathematical models.
Systems biology will raise biomedical and biotechnological research to a new quality level and contribute markedly to progress in understanding. Pooling European research ...

Salmon farmed on modern feeds contains less of the healthy, long-chain fatty acids (EPA and DHA) than before. Up until the turn of the millennium, farmed salmon were fed fish oil as a replacement for their omega-3 rich natural prey. However, fish oil is now a scarce resource, and more than half of the fat in modern feeds comes from plant oils that are inexpensive, but devoid of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. How can we increase the omega-3 content of salmon on sustainable feeds?
One option is ...
Towards the Digital Salmon: From a reactive to a pre-emptive research strategy in aquaculture (DigiSal)
Salmon farming in the future must navigate conflicting and shifting demands of sustainability, shifting feed prices, disease, and product quality. The industry needs to develop a flexible, integrated basis of knowledge for rapid response to new challenges. Project DigiSal will lay the foundations for a Digital Salmon: an ensemble of mathematical descriptions of salmon physiology, combining ...

Coastal zones and oceans constitute an essential fundament for Norway’s history as well as current economy, providing ecosystem services for fisheries, aquaculture, transport, tourism, and recreation. The petroleum activities in Norwegian waters have been crucial for Norway’s financial growth and in financing the Norwegian welfare state. As the pressure on the oceans continuously increases, both the petroleum industry and the seafood industries have acknowledged that awareness and actions are ...
DeepHyperSpec: Combining spectral and image information in the analysis of hyperspectral imaging data Infrared microspectroscopic imaging is a new technique for rapid, label-free and automated diagnosis of various types of cancer. The technique is expected to enter clinical routine analysis in the years coming.
Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research Research in the past decade has shown that biomass conversion into energy fuels and other value added products, in contrast to traditional refineries, requires highly integrated versatile plants. In most cases, such plants will need to produce a portfolio of products that together secure economic sustainability. The Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research aims to develop innovative technology and support industries to realize economic and ...
Bioconversion of low-cost fat materials into high-value PUFA-Carotenoid-rich biomass The project aims at upgrading Norwegian animal slaughter fat by-products to high-value fatty acids by fungal fermentation processes.
