Climate-driven plague outbreaks in Asia were repeatedly introduced into medieval Europe, new research from CEES, Norway, and WSL, Switzerland, shows.
Biologists at CEES, Department of Biosciences, are now making a giant effort to identify the relationship between climate change, rat infestations, and the many major plague epidemics throughout history. The knowledge may be used to predict the next plague outbreak.
CEES organises a 2-day conference on the history of plague, at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. The conference has several prominent speakers, and ends with summarising thoughts by Jared Diamond.
CEES chosen as host of 12 applications
A team involving present and former CEES members has shown that the wheat genome is the result of multiple rounds of hybrid speciation. The findings have broad implications for understanding genome function and, thus, cultivar improvement in bread wheat.
CEES Professor Vøllestad's article Gene pleiotropy constrains gene expression changes in fish adapted to different thermal conditions (Papakostas et al.) was published in Nature Communications 3 June.
The new lab will be operational within the next few months. Its total cost, including equipment, is 18 million NOK (2.2 million EUR).
