Genome Biology Group

Rolf I. Skotheim

We investigate cancer genomes by integrated computational and laboratory based approaches. Our aim is to identify and characterise critical genes involved in the cancer development. Such genes may serve as diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers and also as targets for future molecularly tailored therapy. Our studies are mainly focused on testicular, prostate and colorectal cancers.

The group is an associated member of the Centre for Excellence in Cancer Biomedicine.
