We try to understand how genomes evolve and how genomic variation is linked to phenotypic variation, adaptation, and evolution of traits.

Currently the lab has projects on:

  • whole genome duplications 
  • regulation of seawater tolerance in salmon
  • host-microbiome interactions

Lab updates


August 2020


  • Welome Hanna and Dominiki as new master students in the lab!


  • After years in the making we are sharing our new manuscript (link here) about selection on gene expression after whole genome duplication. Great collaboration with the Hvidsten lab


April 2020



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!!
