About

University of Bergen's specialization in Developmental Biology, Physiology and Nutrition focuses on how living animal are formed and function, and how nutrient influence living organisms.

Overview

Key facts

Development of a multicellular organism starts from a one cell zygote which undergoes a phase of rapid cell divisions. This is followed by cell migration, cell-cell communication, and reorganization to form an organism with different cell types and organs which perform various physiological processes, nutrient uptake essential to its life processes.

University of Bergen's Developmental Biology, Physiology and Nutrition are at the core of understanding the evolutionary relationships between organisms and their abilities to adapt to different environments and ecological communities. Knowledge of normal development and physiological processes function is central to understanding how living animals function and are adapted to their living environment at the molecular, cellular, organ and individual level. Nutrition is central to understanding the need for nutrients through development and how hormones and metabolites regulate genes and proteins in the body to maintain growth and development. Such knowledge is important, for example, mapping and understanding of fish farming conditions and negative environmental effects (climate, pollution and disease).

The field of study is interdisciplinary and requires broad biological understanding, as well as knowledge in chemistry and molecular biology, including bioinformatics. In the study, one will connect insight into anatomical structure, cellular function, and physiology and nutrition, with knowledge of the structure of the genome's function and molecular mechanisms.

Programme Structure

The candidate

  • as detail understanding of molecular processes that take place within and between cells and tissues. The understanding shall be sufficient for you to describe and explain both the processes and their impact on properties , development and evolution of living organisms
  • can select, develop and apply appropriate methods and experimental design to extend our biological knowledge
  • has knowledge of how developmental modules and signaling pathways have an important impact on evolutionary adaptation to the environment and the formation of new species.
