Marina Axelson-Fisk

Docent at Chalmers, Mathematical Sciences, Applied Mathematics and Statistics

Marina Axelson-Fisk is an Assc. Professor in Mathematical Statistics. She works mainly within the field of Bioinformatics, with particular focus on stochastic models and algorithms for comparative genomics and cross-species gene finding. She was, among other things, involved in the initial comparative analyses of the human, mouse and rat in the Mouse and the Rat Sequencing Consortia. She is an associate member of the Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology (CeMEB), where she is involved in the bioinformatics analysis of a number of newly sequenced Swedish coastal organisms.For more information, see my homepage at http://www.math.chalmers.se/~marinaa/
