Infrastructure: Facilities available to CEES

Finse Alpine Research Center

Finse Alpine Research Center, located in the northwestern part of the Hardangervidda mountain plateau, belongs to the faculties of mathematics and natural sciences at the universities of Bergen and Oslo. The center attracts biologists, geologists, geophysicists and other researchers from a wide range of Norwegian and international institutions. Seminars and meetings, as well as university field courses, are regularly held in the conference unit.

Flødevigen Research Station

Flødevigen Research Station near Arendal was founded in 1882, as a "hatchery" for cod fry. Now 125 years old, it is one of the oldest stations of its kind in Europe.

Evenstad Research Station

The experimental area at Evenstad research station has since 1989 been used to perform experiments on root voles (Microtus oeconomus) and field voles (Microtus agrestis). The research area has been committed to perform experimental studies regarding landscape ecology, such as the demographic and behavioural effects of habitat fragmentation, and studies that focus on different demographical processes of populations inhabiting patchy (fragmented) habitats.

The Marine Biology Research Station in Drøbak

The University of Oslo have a marine biological station in Drøbak that includes a research station (Biologen), established in 1894, and a lodging and conference centre (Tollboden), established in 1860.

Bioportal

The Bioportal at University of Oslo is a web-based portal for phylogenomic analysis, population genetics and high-throughput sequence analysis. The main advantage of Bioportal lies in an access to a parallel computational resource that enables demanding computations. Therefore, this resource is designed for large, time consuming computations rather than for an interactive use.

The Norwegian Sequencing Centre (NSC)

The Norwegian Sequencing Centre (NSC) is a consolidation of  the sequencing platforms at the Institute of Medical Genetics (IMG) and CEES.

CEES DNA lab

The CEES DNA lab is a multi-user facility run by the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis at Blindern. It is fully equipped for PCR-based analyses, and the lab enables the efficient use of molecular genetic markers in studies of evolution biology, speciation and hybridization, phylogeography, invasion biology, conservation biology, behavioral ecology etc.

CEES has extensive guidelines and regulations related to using the facilities. Read more at the 'For employees' pages for lab and field work.
