Our research revolves around how genomes evolve and how genomic variation is linked to phenotypic variation, adaptation, and evolution of traits.

Currently the lab has projects on:

  • consequences of whole genome duplication on genome evolution in vertebrates
  • development and regulation of seawater tolerance in anadromous Atlantic salmon
  • impact of host-microbiome interactions for Atlantic salmon metabolism

Lab updates

January 2020

  • Yes! We got the ImproveAFish project funded by NFR-havbruk. Together with Phil Pope, Torgeir Hvidsten (and others) we will interrogate host-microbiome interactions in Atlantic salmon. 

  • My first sabatical has started! Im in the Skarmeta-lab in Sevilla to learn about how to apply Hi-ChiP experiments to my favourite research question: consequences of WGD on genome regulatory evolution!!

  • Two great guys will join our research group! Welcome Marius (PhD) and Alex (postdoc).
