DeLock - DEnitrification unLOCKed. Unlocking the N2O-reduction capacity of denitrifying microbial communities to combat N2O emissions during wastewater treatment processes. Ghent University
In the era of global warming, solutions to reduce greenhouse gases emissions are urgently needed. Nitrous oxide (N2O) has a global warming potential almost 300 times the one of CO2, and accounts for 8% of total anthropogenic GHG emissions. The majority

Providing an open collaborative space for digital biology in Europe Ghent University
EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Biological and Medical ESFRI research infrastructures (BMS RIs) to create an open collaborative space for digital biology. It is our joint response to the challenge of analysing and reusing the prodigious amounts of data produced by life-science. Managing and integrating this data is beyond the capabilities of most individual end-users and institutes. By publishing data and tools in a Europe-wide cloud ...

Effects of tropical rainforest disturbance on gene flow, genomic diversity and introgression in understory trees: the case of Coffea canephora in the Congo basin. KU Leuven
Tropical rainforests cover only 7% of the earth’s surface, but they are by far the richest biomes in terms of vascular plant diversity. To ensure the resilience and long-term stability of tropical rainforests, fostering the regeneration of the occurring woody plant species is critical. Yet, crucial aspects of gene flow, including pollination and seed dispersal, have become strongly jeopardized through ongoing large-scale anthropogenic ...
