Saitou Lab started in 2020. We are broadly interested in revealing the biological bases of uniquely evolved various species by combining multi-scale data sets such as from genomics, molecular, and cellular level observations.

I am in charge of CIGENE online seminar series since 2021. If you are interested in talking about your work there or want to nominate somebody, please let me know (The slot is limited and we cannot guarantee to invite you).

1.2022 We are recruiting MSCA postdoctoral fellows!

1.2022 Kristina's paper in collaboration with Louis Bernatchez's group in Canada has been submitted. Kristina contributed in the genomic structural variants analysis in Lake Whitefish species.

1.2022 Domniki has started her career as a Ph.D. candidate!

11.2021 One PostDoc position in gene editing is available (closed)

11. 2021 Master projects at CIGENE are now open. The tuition fee at NMBU is free.
