Janine Mariën


As a technician in molecular biology I’m involved in many projects of the department. I teach students, PhD’s and postdocs the technics and technical skills to perform their desired analyses. Gene expression experiments, cloning experiments on ML-I level and Sanger sequencing are basic techniques in our lab, as are DNA- and RNA isolation protocols for NGS sequencing. Besides that I develop new techniques or adjustments to known techniques.
