Thomas Källman BILS expert


I completed my PhD in Functional genomics at Uppsala University in 2009. Both during my PhD and my following post-doc and research positions my main interest and focus has been to use population genetic data and patterns of gene expression to identify genes underlying local adaptation in plants. I have experience in analysing gene expression patterns both from microarray and RNA-sequence data and have also worked with sRNA data. Within BILS my main focus is analysis of RNA sequence data.
