University of Tartu researchers continue to study coronavirus strains circulating in Estonia | Research In Estonia

Medical #researchers from University of Tartu are planning to sequence and analyse up to 6500 full-genomic sequences of SARS-CoV-2 in #Estonia. 👀

Part of the KoroGeno-EST-3 project is to create a set of interactive tools to graphically display various aspects of the project. 💡

„This tool allows the Health Board and other institutions that manage the epidemic to monitor the situation directly and help to plan local and national activities,“ says Kristi Huik, head of the KoroGeno-EST-3 project.

Self-Destructive Mutant Mosquitoes May Save the World from Insecticides | Research In Estonia

#Scientists released genetically modified male #mosquitoes 🦟 into nature to reduce the number of mosquito species carrying #infectiousdiseases that are dangerous to humans.

“The advantage of this is that male mosquitoes can pass on the gene 🧬 variant lethal to their female offspring from generation to generation and thereby 📉 suppress the population in the long run,” commented Richard Tamme, Senior Lecturer at the @TalTech - Tallinn University of Technology.

What is precariousness and what does it mean? 🤔

Abel Polese defines precariousness as having no medium or long-term expectation of #employment, noting the situation is particularly acute in #Asia. 🌏

He and his team at Tallinn University are leading an EU-supported project called Labour to better understand the dynamics around precariousness in Asia, particularly within the context of the 🦠COVID-19 pandemic.

The Baltic Sea is recovering with the help of scientists | Research In Estonia

Eating small fish 🐟 benefits the #balticsea!

Eutrophication, the excess of minerals and nutrients, is the biggest problem in the Baltic Sea. 🌊 Eating local small #fish like Baltic herring and sprat will help to take the excessive minerals and nutrients out of the sea," says Joonas Plaan from Tallinn University.

Sustainable fishing also depends on the consumers. For example, one of the biggest shopping chain Rimi Eesti removed 🚫 all the non-sustainable fish from their shelves.

A project led by University of Tartu, will turn ⚡ energies to energy-generating #fuelcells. Glen Kelp, a leader of the project, noted that fuel cell can use fuels like 💡 #hydrogen, a somewhat ignored energy source that is making a comeback as an alternative to #coal and #gasoline. Energy from hydrogen can also be generated in an #environmentallyfriendly way. “We can not only reduce pollution, we can get rid of pollution,” said Kelp.

Vibrios and climate change: Can nature-based methods mitigate the potential threat in the Baltic Sea? | Research In Estonia 25/05/2021

Vibrios and climate change: Can nature-based methods mitigate the potential threat in the Baltic Sea? | Research In Estonia

Vibrio bacteria, including species that are harmful to humans, are a natural component of #balticsea 🌊 plankton. As a consequence of #climatechange, they may become more common due to rising water temperatures 🌡️ and thus an increasing #healthrisk. The #BaltVib project is investigating 🔍 whether certain plant and animal communities such as #seagrass and mussel beds naturally reduce near shore Vibrio abundance and how this effect can be supported through actively shaping the marine #environment.
