Institute of Life and Environmental Sciences

Biological research focus areas

Faculty and independent researchers study various fields of biology. The research centers on several key topics and study systems related to Icelandic and Arctic biology, but also general topics like molecular biology, ecology and evolution.

Special research projects and focal areas

Marine research in Iceland - Marice.is. Research on various aspects of fish biology - supervised by Gudrun Marteinsdottir and collaborators.

 

Lichen genomics - The metagenome and transcriptome of Peltigera membranacea. Supervised by Olafur S. Andresson, Zophonias O. Jonsson and collaborators.

 

Arctic charr ecology and genomics. Supervised by Sigurdur S. Snorrason, Zophonias O. Jonsson, Sigridur R. Franzdottir, Arnar Palsson and collaborators.

 

Research in biology was for many years within the Institute of Biology at the University of Iceland, that merged into the new Institute of Life and Environmental Sciences.
