At IMR I am working as a Bioinformatician.

Our research-group is a Microbiology group under the umbrella of 'Foreign and infections agents'  research-section. This section focuses on the seafood safety including monitoring of wildfish species along the Norwegian coast.

We gather samples  from water, soil, waste-effluents, etc and study the bacterial genetic composition and their diversity. The study also involves a thorough taxonomic and phylogenetic analysis of the bacteria obtained. Our studies are a radar for monitoring and evaluating the microbiome and the effects of anthropogenic activities on it. 



Our analysis focuses on determining genes of special importance like Anti-microbial resistance, Biocide, metal-resistance, mobile-genetic elements etc. We even try to understand the the influence of each of the above genes on the presence or absence of other genes. We use  Linux based bioinformatic resources (like the programs and packages etc.) for our analysis.  As a huge amount of information/result-data is generated from the sequence-read data we rely on Python and R for a further downstream analysis.
