The United Nations has proclaimed May 22 the International Day for Biological Diversity with the purpose of increasing the level of awareness and knowledge about biodiversity. This year’s theme has been chosen to coincide with the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Developmenta measure that recognizes the importance of sustainable tourism, thus promoting better management of the economic, social and environmental needs and resources of localities and tourists.

Vezeira Association promotes activities that fit perfectly within the scope of this celebration, for respecting the cultural integrity of a village of the Peneda Gerês National Park and its natural environment. This association tries to minimize the impact caused by human activity, to ensure and to protect the heritage that the destination is, both now and in the future.

32nd Symposium of the European Society of Nematologists (ESN)

The 32nd Symposium of the European Society of Nematologists (ESN), held at UMinho, Braga, from past 28th August to1st September, was reported in the last issue of the Nematology News: vol. 78 (1), 2017. Here we can find a nice summary of the Symposium, under the title "Memories from Braga…”, starting as follows:

"There are certain places that bring a smile on your face because of pleasant memories. This certainly applies to Braga, Portugal thanks to a very successful ESN symposium”.

This was only possible due to all efforts and strong dedication of a very special CBMA team holding hands with the fantastic team of the Laboratory of Nematology of the University of Coimbra, and the support of the ESN Governing Board, along the past two years.

Xylanase is an enzyme that comes from a bacterium found in Antarctica. It was studied by Tony Collins, a researcher at the CBMA

Padarias de todo o mundo usam enzima estudada em Portugal - Diário de Notícias, 16 fevereiro’17

It helps to strengthen the bread dough, manking it bigger and softer for longer. It is called xylanase and is an enzyme that comes from a bacterium found in Antarctica. It was studied by Tony Collins, a researcher at the University of Minho, and is currently being used by bakeries around the world. "This xylanase began to be used four years ago, but only now began to be sold worldwide," said the researcher at the Center for Molecular and Environmental Biology at UMinho's School of Sciences. According to Tony Collins, this is an example of a "full study," from "sampling the south pole [with a scientific exploration of Antarctica] to the application in the manufacture of products we consume regularly." Two international patents have resulted from the work in the laboratory, translated into a product commercialized worldwide by the Belgian company Puratos.

Extremophiles, life on the edge.

Tony Collins, FCT researcher at the CBMA, Centre of Molecular and Environmental Biology, speaks about his work with extremophiles, organisms living in extreme conditions and mainly those from cold environments, on the Antena 1 radio show  ‘Ponto de Partida’.

The researcher, who made two expeditions to Antarctica, studies how these organisms adapt to adverse conditions and applies this knowledge to the development of proteins with application in industrial processes.

Ciência Acontece! O mundo é dos pequenos!

 

Ciência Acontece! O mundo é dos pequenos!

Quem são os seres vivos mais pequenos que conheces? Onde estão? Qual é o seu tamanho? Existem muitos? Poucos? E é fácil medi-los, contá-los e representá-lo?... Lá vem a matemática ...!
Será que a tua vida depende destes micróbios? São simpáticos, ou nem por isso? Já agora? são parecidos uns com os outros? E para que nos servem? Ajudam-nos e são nossos aliados? Devemos respeitá-los ou eliminá-los?

Se queres descobrir as respostas a estas questões, saber porque é que a nossa vida depende dos microrganismos, e perceber como se podem medir e contar, só precisas de vir participar, cheio de curiosidade e vontade de aprender, no dia 26 de novembro, pelas 10:00 horas, na "Ciência Acontece!".

PubhD UMinho #10

 

Bar Sé lá Vie, Braga, 24 de novembro, 21h.

Quão longe estamos de conseguir produzir órgãos em laboratório? E quais são as verdadeiras pragas que as cidades enfrentam? A Medicina Regenerativa e Ecologia vão marcar presença na 10ª edição do PubhD UMinho, em Braga.

Será no SÉ LA VIE que duas jovens cientistas darão a conhecer o seu trabalho de investigação. No PubhD não há lugar para apresentações aborrecidas, palestras tradicionais, computadores nem apresentações digitais. É para esta conversa informal, entre amigos, que o grupo STOL - Science Through Our Lives o quer convidar. Junte-se a nós!

"Órgãos à lá carte"

"As pragas (do Egipto) da cidade Invicta"

O PubhD (pub de bar e PhD de doutoramento) é um movimento de divulgação da ciência que surgiu em Nottingham (2014) e chegou a Portugal em 2015 (Lisboa). Em 2016, por iniciativa do STOL - Science Through Our Lives, o PubhD começou a realizar-se, alternadamente, nas cidades de Braga e Guimarães.
