First dna sequencing of cancer performed
Now, the first so-called cancer cell line in Sweden has been DNA sequenced at Stockholm’s new Science for Life Laboratory, a national research centre, which is partly managed by KTH. The dna sequencing gives a picture of what cancer looks like and is a step towards better understanding of how cancer arises.
Baltic flora of bacterial plankton mapped out
Using advanced DNA sequencing technology, researchers at KTH in an international research collaboration have created a three dimensional map of the distribution of thousands of bacterial plankton species in the Baltic Sea. Since bacteria play key roles in various nutrient cycles in the marine environment, this is important work in order to understand how the Baltic Sea’s ecosystem functions.
