In my research I work with DNA microarrays, that makes it possible to investigate in which magnitude the genes of an organism is used at different conditions. This can be sick cells compared versus healthy or bacteria growing at different conditions or with genetically modified genes. With these tools we can investigate all genes in an organism in one experiment, in humans there are over 30.000 genes. The data that we get from our experiments is analyzed using programming tools such as R and Perl.
In the projects that I am involved in we try to identify genes that can be used to treat Alzheimer’s Disease and we have discovered three genes that currently is used to develop new medications. Additionally I also work with the bacteria Bacillus subtilis that is very important for the production of enzymes and is closely related to the bacteria that cause anthrax (B. anthracis) and multi-resistant  infections in hospitals world-wide (S. aureus).
