Join the Curatorial Director of the Berndt Museum, Dr John Stanton and Professor Sandy Toussaint, Exhibition Coordinator, as they discuss, the importance of working together with Pike’s grandson, Terry Murray, to deliver an exhibition that is true to Jimmy Pike and his artistic heritage, as well as his artistic patrimony. The Berndt Museum has a long and well-recognised track record for its ongoing engagement with Aboriginal ‘communities of origin’: the Pike exhibition is its most recent affirmation.

10:00 - BOOK LAUNCH - CMSS invites you to meet the Author Mrs Savitri Goswami. : Mrs Savitri Goswami is one of the limited number of Indian writers who use Urdu language as a medium of expression. Her new book Dard key Rishtay has been published in Urdu by Mavara Publishers in Lahore. More Information
Savitri Goswami was only a child when she wrote her first play. It was so good that she was advised to take it to the local radio station, in her city Gorahkpur, Inspired by her first broadcast, the young Savitri took to her pen with great vigour, churning out many dramas, to the delight of her family and friends.

15:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Adventures In Arctic Seas and Metagenomes- The Search for Cold Adapted Enzymes Website | More Information
Organisms living in cold environments must possess enzymes which function at lower temperatures in order to survive. Humans have found uses for these enzymes in the food and processing industries, domestic products and for biotechnological applications. This, along with their potential for bioremediation and renewable energy production has driven efforts to discover novel cold adapted enzymes. At the University of Tromsø 300 km north of the Arctic circle we have access to remote cold environments, and our samples comprise a variety of marine biota and sediments collected from the polar regions. Here I will present a strategy for the discovery of new enzymes from metagenomic DNA- that is the DNA complement of a given environment rather than an individual organism. I will discuss the methods we are using to produce enzymes from this DNA giving an example of a protein that I am currently characterising. This example illustrates the complexity of investigating proteins from unknown sources, and how research often gives us answers we do not expect.

Adele Kim Williamson is a postdoctoral fellow in the MARZymes project, where her focus is the recombinant expression and structural and functional characterisation of novel enzymes from our metagenomic libraries. Currently she is working with a number of enzymes which may have functions in cell wall degradation, as well as putative DNA ligase and nitrilase proteins. Before coming to Norway, she completed a doctorate at the Research School of Biological Sciences in the Australian National University in 2007, and then worked as a post doctoral researcher at the Umeå Plant Sciences Centre in Sweden until early 2010. Her previous work involved structural and functional characterisation of subunits from the Photosystem II complex, with a particular interest in comparisons between thermophilic and mesophilic homologues. Adele is originally from New Zealand and took her BSc. in biochemistry at the University of Canterbury.

19:30 - PERFORMANCE - School of Music Presents: Percussion Purity! XENTENARY Website | More Information
In a festival extravaganza, the 90th birthday and 10th anniversary of Xenakis’ death is celebrated in one magnificent event. This unique composer wrote music of extraordinary power and originality, and the imposing stone and space of Winthrop Hall provides the perfect architectural counterpart to this monumental music. Inspired and directed by celebrated Artist Paul Tanner, this extraordinary event promises to amaze and enthuse all ages. Joined by a host of professional percussionists on stage and around the hall, works to be performed include Xenakis’ Pleiades (movement 1) Menages, and Pleiades (movement 2) Metaux.
