Projects

NoGas
A Novel Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Technology for Livestock Manure Slurry. In the project a novel greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation technology for manure slurry will be further developed and optimized. The overall aim is to demonstrate that the technology is an efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly and safe mitigation strategy for manure slurry both in livestock housing and in storage facilities. 
Project coordinator: Henrik Karring
Start: December 2019
End: November 2022
The project is funded by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark.
 

Identification of Natural Product Drugs for Corneal Diseases associated with Mutations in the TGFBI Gene. 
In the project a high throughput screen against mutant TGFBIp domains will be performed to identify potential drugs against corneal diseases. Project coordinator Henrik Karring
Start: November 2014
End: April
2019
The
project is partly supported by Fight for Sight Denmark.

ManUREA Technology
Next Generation Manure Ammonia Reduction Technology. In the project a novel and cost-effective strategy to inhibit the urea hydrolysis process in manure slurry will be developed and optimized. 
Project coordinator Henrik Karring
Start: October 2015
End: September
2019
The
project is funded by Grønt Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram (GUDP) under the Ministry of Environment and   Food of Denmark. 

 

Molecular Interactions of Collagen-binding Proteins
In the project collagen-binding proteins are purified and studied using different biochemical techniques with the aim to identify molecular interactions involved in collagen fibril formation. 
Project coordinator Henrik Karring
Start: February 2016
End: February 2019.
 
Optimization and Characterization of Heterologous Protein Expression in Genetically Modified Microorganisms.
Genes encoding proteins of interest are cloned and expressed in bacteria or yeast cells. The heterologous protein production is optimized in bioreactors.

 

Optimization of Microalgae Metabolite Production.
Production of microalgae metabolites such as omega-3-fatty acids and natural dyes like carotene, phycocyanin and astaxantin are optimized. The effects of factors like nutrition, light intensity and wavelength are studied.

Antibiotics and antimicrobial agents.
Novel strategies to prevent microbial contamination and growth are explored with reference to industrial processes, production safety/hygiene, and infectious diseases.

Study of Yeast Metabolism.
The metabolism of yeast with respect to production of e.g. glycerol, ethanol, and enzymes under respiratory and non-respiratory condition are studied. The effects of different nutrients and their concentration, and aeration are studied.
