Daniel Vik new PhD student at DynaMo

On 1 June 2014 Daniel Vik commenced as a PhD Student at DynaMo. Daniel just completed an MSc degree in Biochemistry here at DynaMo. In his thesis work he studied protein-protein interactions between the enzymes of the glucosinolate biosynthetic pathway in the modelplant Arabidopsis thaliana. This was done using a variety of biochemical and genetic methods. Also, during his Master’s program Daniel spend three months as an intern in the lab of Professor Matthias Mann at the Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Munich, Germany, where he studied Huntington’s disease using state-or-the-art mass spectrometry based proteomics.

As a PhD student at DynaMo Daniel will be part of the PPI (protein-protein interaction) sub-group. The aim of his PhD project is to elucidate the post-translational regulation of the glucosinolate biosynthesis. His principal supervisor is Head of DynaMo Professor Barbara Ann Halkier and his cosupervisor is Assocaite Professor Meike Burow, also from DynaMo.

Welcome Daniel!
