I received my PhD in Bioinformatics from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel.  During my PhD I had studied miRNA regulation in host-virus interactions. I am currently working on developing new computational methods for studying miRNA regulation in C. elegans, with a focus on the let-7 family.  I
n my free time, I and my family explore the beautiful area around.

   

Visiting Scientist

Tomasz Krzywkowski, M.Sc; BEng
Stockholm University
Stockholm, Sweden

I received my BEng degree in Biotech at the University of Life Sciences in Warsaw and my Ma.Sc in Biotech at Uppsala University, Sweden. Currently, I am a PhD student in the department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University.  My research focuses on development of sensitive and specific RNA detection methods in situ and in vitro.  

In the Ambros lab I wish to use my expertise in nucleic acid detection field to study temporal and spatial expression of small RNAs in C.elegans.
