Mucus is a viscoelastic material which protects epithelial surfaces from the external environment.  The functions of mucus are usually described as protection, lubrication, and transport , and in all these cases the physico-mechanical properties of the mucus are vital for function. But how does the presence of bacteria affect the function of the mucus?

Diatoms is a group of unicellular eukaryotic microalgae. Due to their high lipid content they can be used as fish feed in aquaculture or generation of biofuels/bioplastics. How can the CRISPR/Cas gene editing system be used to develop strains of diatoms that are better suited for growth in bioreactors?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is often mentioned as the solution to many of our future challenges, also within healthcare, and in January 2020 the Norwegian Government launched a National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence. What role could AI play in cancer diagnostics? How should diagnoses be set in the future, and which new questions might arise when introducing new technologies?

Time and place: Mar. 2, 2020 10:00 AM, Botanical Gardens, Oslo

This workshop aims at enabling an arena for researchers, policy advisors and legal practitioners to discuss current developments on debates on access to and commercial exploitation of biodiversity. Some key questions: What happens when physical collections become digital data? How would data be published, stored and shared? How would the access to digital collections be regulated? How would that affect access to physical collections? Do we need national systems for monitoring access and use of physical/digital collections? What are best policy solutions? We invite DLN partners to a 1-day workshop. The workshop will start by inviting a discussion on main challenges regarding access to genetic materials in Norway, to follow on the particular debate on access to and use of Digital Sequence Information (DSI) as it is currently addressed in the framework of the Nagoya Protocol. In this regard, the workshop includes a focus the shortcomings of the notion of DSI, and on current debates on monitoring and tracking systems for digital genetic information.
