Antibiotic resistance genes stored on glaciers (Geny oporności na antybiotyki przechowywane na lodowcach)

The rapid growth and permanent spreading of resistance to antibiotics among bacteria is an unquestioned global problem and according to the World Health Organization, one of the most serious threats of the 21st century. Currently, drug-resistant diseases cause at least 700,000 deaths globally per year and it is estimated that this number will increase to … Continue reading

OPUS grant “role of animals in shaping cryoconite hole ecosystems” (Grant OPUS “rola zwierząt w kształtowaniu ekosystemów kriokonitowych”)

Cryoconite holes –  ecosystems studied within the project. A – cryoconite holes on Longyearbreen (Svalbard), B – cylindrical cryoconite hole on Longyearbreen (Svalbard), C – cryoconite hole on Forni Glacier (the Alps). Dark matter on the bottom of holes are cryoconite granules. Otwory kriokonitowe –  ekosystemy badane w ramach projektu. A – otwory kriokonitowe na … Continue reading
