The topic of study for the collaboration is microRNAs and their involvement in breast cancer related negative feedforward networks. These networks are common in biological systems and are used to generate sharply defined pulses, exemplified by a transcription factor that promotes expression of an mRNA downstream while promoting expression of an inhibitor of the mRNA (the microRNA) simultanously.
Thomas Fleischer is a new member of the group. He has just finished his Master degree in biology from NTNU and is now working with us as a vit. ass. with a main focus on methylation.
