On the morning of May 9th, Michael G. Gänzle, a professor of the University of Alberta, Canada, gave a lecture entitled "Microbial Ecology of Cereal Fermentations" in Room A414 of the new Light Industry Building . Teachers and postgraduate students from the School of Biological Engineering and Food Science attended the lecture.


In the report, Professor Gänzle explained the evolutionary history of microbial flora in cereal fermented food and lactic acid bacteria in sourdough bread by bioinformatics. He also took the metabolism of lactic acid bacteria and the glutamic acid metabolic pathway as examples to analyze the effect of lactic acid bacteria metabolism on the texture and flavor of sourdough bread.


At the end of the lecture, Professor Gänzle gave a presentation about the effects of polysaccharides, starch, and protein on the quality of the bread, and the characteristics of lactic acid bacteria, with the teachers and students. All attendees thought itwas a very beneficial lecture and would inspire them in their academic research.

Foreign Students Volunteer at HBUT Kindergarten

 Recently, four international students from different countries visited the HBUT kindergarten, and spent a pleasant afternoon volunteering with them.  They were led by our teachers, and staff of the School of International Education. 


These four students are freshmen enrolled at HBUT this spring. They are currently studying with the School of International Education for Chinese learning, and will go to different majors in the fall semester.The volunteers started with a simple Chinese self-introduction, and then they presented their native cultures through pictures and videos as well as some English dialogue. At the end of the activity, the volunteers performed a vibrant African folk dance and the children responded with a cute "Happy New Year" dance.


The teachers believe that the biggest obstacle in students' communication with Chinese people is the language, while teaching language in class is limited. So the school has been organizing a variety of activities to promote the involvement of students among Chinese people. As the old saying goes, "the key to sound relations between states lies in the affinity between their people". We hope the group of foreign students can be given more chances to exchange culture and ideas.
