Lunch Seminar:  A visit among penguins – the start-up phase of a project

Wednesday 16th of March, 12.00–12.45 in Seminar room Tanngrisner 1, VHC., Uppsala, Sweden

Dr Maja Malmberg

Free lunch sandwiches will be served on a first come first serve principle.

Late last year, Maja Malmberg (BVF) and Juliette Hayer (HGEN) visited Punta Arenas and the Antarctic Institu-te in Chile.

Together with colleagues there they initiated a project with the aim to characterize the microbiome of Magellanic penguins, focusing mainly on yet unknown viruses. At this lunch seminar Maja will present the project, how they did to start this project and what they plan to do in the near future. The visit was made within the framework of the European-American Network for Next Generation Sequencing where Erik Bongcam-Rudloff is the project leader at SLU.
