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.
An ancient DNA (aDNA) laboratory is situated on the Blindern Campus at the Department of Biosciences (IBV). The day-to-day management of the laboratory is the responsibility of (CEES). The laboratory features positive air-pressure with HEPA filtered inflow, UV lighting throughout, and is equipped for work on all kinds of ancient material such as sediments, seeds, museum skins, and bones from any organism, including human.
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.
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 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.
