Samples from Antarctica

Submitted by ohsadmin

Who is interested in material from the Antarctic?

In November this year it is time for yet another trip to the Antarctic region (Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula), where IEE-related researchers will collect biological material within a specific project, mainly faecal material from wild birds. Our main focus is to look for antibiotic resistance patterns in bacteria, but the samples may be utilized also for other analyses. If any IEE-linked colleagues are interested in using some of this material for scientific purposes, analyzing some other aspect, please contact Björn Olsen (Bjorn.Olsen@medsci.uu.se), preferably beforehand.
