CPG is expanding

We are most happy to announce the addition of a new PI at CPG. Tom van der Valk, who recently was hired as a DDLS Fellow at the Swedish Museum of Natural History is joining the Centre. Tom got his PhD in 2019 at Uppsala University, after working on genomics of declining populations, primarily in gorillas. He has previously held a position as Postdoctoral Researcher at CPG and was one of the main authors of the study on the record breaking million-year-old aDNA from mammoths. Most recently he has been working as a bioinformatician for the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS). Tom will, among other things, develop computational methods for analyzing DNA from environmental samples and will work on both ancient and modern DNA from a range of organisms. We wish him a warm welcome!
