I am involved in several projects in the genome biology group (planning of experiments and carrying these out in the laboratory). Additionally I have some routine work at the department. I perform several methods, including RNA and DNA isolation, cDNA synthesis, PCR (both standard and quantitative), Sanger sequencing, fragment analysis/capillary electrophoresis, and cell line authentication.

 

Academic degree:

2010: Msc in Molecular Biology, University of Oslo. "Exon-specific biomarkers in cancer: Experimental validation of exon microarray data from colorectal and testicular cancers"
