This summer, BIOVIT/IHA’s Research group Ethology and Animal Environment will organise a world congress on behaviour and welfare of farm animals in Bergen – in collaboration with NMBU/VETMED, Animalia, NIBIO, The Veterinary Institute (VI) and the Marine Research Institute (HI).
In the REWIRED project, we will use salmonid fish, which underwent a genome duplication 100 million years ago, as a model system to study the importance of genome duplication in evolution of new gene functions and adaptation.
The centre for fish research is a modern centre for small scale fish experiments. The centre has specially adapted facilities for feed research, RAS technology (recycling of water for aquaculture) and the use of isotopes as a tracking method in fish. The centre also has an isolated quarantine station for emergency preparedness.
Faculty of Biosciences has a long standing cooperation with Center for Feed Technology (Fôrtek), who is a international centre for feed technology owned by the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU).
