Background and activities

A project of the centre for Digital Life Norway, AurOmega, seeks to understand what limits DHA-synthesis in a novel Thraustochytrids strain and how the DHA-synthesis can be improved through system biology approaches. The focus of my work lies on 1) establishing genetic manipulation method for strain engineering. 2) Participating in the phenotypic characterization of the strain, my part being transcriptome analyses. 3) Create the necessary mutants for verification and refinement of the metabolic model.
