Phenotypic mutations, translation errors, evolvability, robustness


MSc in Marine Ecology at North University (2011-2013), Norway.

Since my master's degree, I made a shift from evolutionary ecology to evolutionary bioinformatics.
Currently trying to understand translational errors' impact on protein evolution. More specifically I work with  with ribosome profiling data in yeast, focusing on translational readthrough.
