    Sigbjørn Lien

    Centre leader, professor

    I am professor in genetics at Faculty of Biosciences, NMBU. My main research interests are genomics, genome evolution and genetic variation related to the genetic architecture of complex traits

        Dag Inge Våge

        Professor

        In general, my research interest is to reveal and understand the link between genotype and phenotype in molecular terms. Currently, I am involved in projects dealing with genetic and functional studies of flesh pigmentation in salmon and stress-related behaviour in rainbow trout.

            Simen Sandve

            Associate professor

            I am interested in how genomes evolve and how genomic variation is linked to phenotypic variation, adaptation, and evolution of novel traits. Im currently involved in studying evolutionary consequences of whole genome duplication, lipid metabolism in Atlantic salmon, and local genetic adaptation of wild salmon.

                Matthew Kent

                Researcher

                Although my formal education was as a cell biologist, I have, in recent years, taken on research more becoming of a molecular geneticist. In my work, I am involved in development of novel genotyping tools for (primarily) fish species, the application of new technologies for fish genomic research, and addressing certain specific biological questions.

                    Administrative coordinator

                    My work focuses at carrying out administrative and management tasks within CIGENE, and to assist with administration and coordination of research projects. I have a background as researcher and project manager.

                        Phillip Pope

                        Associate professor

                        My research applies interdisciplinary approaches to study the gut microbiomes of important production animals (cows, pigs and salmon) and wild herbivores (moose, reindeer). I am particularly interested in using multi-omic tools to deconvolute the intimate genetic and physiological relationship between the host animal and its microbiome.
