Biographical Information

My research involves using public genome databases and bioinformatic tools to investigate the evolution of vertebrate genomes, especially those regions that include gene families involved in neurobiological and endocrine processes. Currently I am researching the molecular evolution of neuroendocrine peptides and receptors, including the growth hormone-prolactin system and the oxytocin-vasopressin system, but I'm also involved in projects about the evolution of visual systems and of ion channels. Visit my webste at www.egosumdaniel.se to find out more about me.
