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:

  • Genome evolution after whole genome duplication 
  • Genome regulation through life stage transitions
  • Host-microbiome interactions

Lab updates

November 2020

  • A fun collaboration between quantitative geneticists and omics people (i.e. us) reveal genetic architecture of salmon metabolism! Published in GSE.

October 2020

  • Happy to have been part of this exciting new paper in PLOS Genetics, led by Shona Wood and Alex West at UiT. What happends to the circadian clock genes after a genome duplication?

August 2020

  • Welome Hanna and Domniki 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.
