Malin Larsson

Principal Research Engineer

Bioinformatician in National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS)

I work as bioinformatician in the Linköping node of National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS), which is a distributed research infrastructure supporting life sciences in Sweden. I give support to research projects based on next generation sequencing (NGS) data, where my role is to develop algorithms to analyse and visualize the data.

The main focus of my research is cancer genomics. Whole genome sequencing of tumour cells and matched normal cells is used to identify somatic mutations and chromosomal aberrations in the tumour cells that may affect tumour development.

Researchers at Linköping University are welcome to contact me for any questions about bioinformatics in their research projects.
