Espegrend, sometimes also called Espeland, is a Norwegian marine biological station. run by University of Bergen, Norway.  It is located about 20km south of Bergen.

Espeland has a number of specialized facilities and internationally well-known for is mesocosm facility.

From May 8 to June 2, 2017 a group of scientists (that’s us) will be at the station to study the interaction of the globally important phytoplankton Emiliania huxleyi (E. hux) with the viruses that infect and kill E. hux cells.  Read more about why and how we plan to to study this here.
