The main objective of SynBio4Flav is to go further in the standardization of high complexity synthetic biological parts, and to demonstrate the development of a standardized, and systematic platform for flavonoids production based on synthetic microbial consortia (SMCs).

The group around Nicole Radde specializes in the modeling, analysis, and simulation of biochemical systems. This especially includes parameter optimization and identification.

Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN) project 'OXYMOD - Optimized oxidative enzyme systems for efficient conversion of lignocellulose to valuable products'

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

The project addresses the generation and establishment of programmed pacemaker cells for an in vitro drug testing possibility to perform predictive tests. This may lead to an improved treatment of cardiac arrhythmias or an accurate identification of potential drug molecules at a very early stage of development. Important benefits will arise in verifying the safety of a wide variety of medicines while reducing animal testing.

This project is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) program of the

MESI-STRAT: Systems Medicine of Metabolic-Signaling Networks -A New Concept for Breast Cancer Patient Stratification.
Breast cancer is a complex disease with high prevalence in the European Union and world-wide. 75%-80 of the patients have estrogen receptor-positive (ER)-positive tumors and are treated with endocrine therapies. Endocrine therapies, which block ER-driven tumor growth, show high efficacy. Yet, a significant proportion of the patients will eventually relapse with metastatic breast

Our world is changing fast! Key global trends are rapid urbanisation, growing and ageing populations, and increased prosperity. This results in depletion of natural and petrochemical resources and climate change, which affects the quality of the environment and people's lives. Therefore, developing a bio-based economy is key to sustain our planet in the long term. Raw materials will have to be recruited from renewable sources.

Industrial biotechnology is potentially a very powerful technology in

Biomining is a biotechnological process carried out in many parts of the world that exploits acid loving microorganisms to extract metals from sulphide minerals. One industrial biomining method is called ‘heap bioleaching’ where typically copper containing minerals are piled into very large heaps, acid and microorganisms are added to the top and the soluble metal is collected at the heap base.

The role of the different types of microbes in the process is to speed up metal solubilisation by oxidising

Understanding the molecular basis of diseases can shed light into new methods to manage and cure diseases. Exploring the common or unique molecular mechanisms among a group of diseases may enhance our understanding of each disease or uncover therapeutic approaches that can be effective in multiple diseases. In this project we develop methods that use biological networks and known gene-disease associations to identify common molecular mechanisms associated across multiple diseases.

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

This is a sandbox where DigiSal members can learn to use the SEEK.

Tutorial document: http://tinyurl.com/seek-ds17

The SEEK is a web interface to a database of research "assets" organised in a hierarchical "ISA structure" (investigation-study-assay) [1].
These are further organised into projects and programmes.

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
