I am a PostDoc in prof. Brautaset's lab at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. During my Ph studies D, Irla was involved in two ERA projects; SynMet and MetAPP (PAL) and currently in I am active in C1Pro project (Asset housekeeper). I have been working with methylotrophic Bacillus methanolicus since 2012, in that time I have been involved in engineering of that bacterium for production of different value-added products (amino acids and their derivatives, vitamins, and others). Furthermore, I have improved existing genetic toolbox for this bacterium and analyzed its metabolism on the level of genome and transcriptome. My extensive experience in work with methylotrophic organism is a strong base for development of new projects in this field of research.
