We are thrilled to announce that DNASense is participating in the prestigious Congress on Gastrointestinal Function 2024 as a Gold Level Sponsor! 🌟 Join us at the forefront of cutting-edge research and innovation in gastrointestinal health.

Check out the conference details here: Congress on Gastrointestinal Function 2024

DNASense is also presenting a poster on the cutting-edge use of long-read DNA sequencing (Oxford Nanopore Technologies) for optimized MAG retrieval from the highly challenging cow rumen microbiome. In addition, DNASense co-founder and Aalborg University professor Mads Albertsen is attending as an invited speaker, and will be sharing insights and expertise from the Albertsen lab. 🧬

A huge thanks to Phil Pope for extending the invitation. We are grateful for the opportunity to connect and collaborate with fellow microbiome enthusiasts in the field of gastrointestinal research.

Stay tuned for updates from the event! 🌐

🌱🔬 Monitoring microbiome N2O emissions using DNA sequencing 🔬🌱

🌱🔬 Monitoring microbiome N2O emissions using DNA sequencing 🔬🌱 800 709 admin

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas with greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, that significantly influences global warming. N2O emissions are the largest single contribution from Danish wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to greenhouse gas emissions.

Effectively addressing N2O emissions necessitates a thorough understanding of the microorganism communities, the microbiomes, within WWTP processes.  To this end, DNASense provides cutting-edge microbiome analyses as part of a Krüger A/S led project to reduce WWTP N2O emissions.

DNASense recently shipped sampling kits to the 13 Danish WWTPs participating in Krüger A/S´s project. Incoming samples are marker gene sequenced (bacteria 16S rRNA V1-8) using Oxford Nanopore Technologies long-read sequencing for accurate and high-resolution profiling of the WWTP microbiomes.

Marker gene sequencing offers cost-effective microbiome monitoring, providing essential operational insights for engineered microbial communities in applications like WWTPs, biofuel production, and remediation plants.


DNASense is pleased to announce the newest addition to our team – Emil Aarre Sørensen! 🎉

DNASense is pleased to announce the newest addition to our team – Emil Aarre Sørensen! 🎉 800 870 admin

Emil is a top alumni from the prestigious Mads Albertsen‘s lab at AAU and joins the DNASense team as a Research Scientist, bringing a formidable background in Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) amplicon sequencing, ONT method development, and generating microbiomics reference data sets. 🧬💻

We are eager to leverage his expertise to make significant strides in our research initiatives at DNASense. 🚀

Emil recently submitted his PhD-project titled “THE MICROBIAL rRNA DATABASE OF DENMARK – MICROFLORA DANICA,” and covers groundbreaking research aimed at establishing a comprehensive rRNA reference database of microorganisms in Denmark. His work involved advancing state-of-the-art amplicon sequencing techniques and long-read sequencing of rRNA genes from thousands of samples representing diverse habitats in Denmark. 🌍💡
