Peter Refsing Andersen - Laboratory on Genetic Innovation


In preparation

Current projects

We are currently developing several projects within the main research areas. If you are interested in learning more, then simply get in contact with Peter to hear about the opportunities in the lab.


Leveraging the powerful genetics of live fruit flies (Drosophila) we are able to connect molecular mechanisms to real biological phenotypes in germline development and fertility. We complement in vivo studies with experiments in cell culture systems to uncover further molecular mechanisms and enable reductionist approaches to our questions.


To characterize our genetic systems, we perform a range of molecular and biochemical techniques including a variety of high-throughput sequencing methods, protein interaction assays and molecular imaging techniques.


Our lab is currently funded by generous support from Aarhus University and the Novo Nordisk Foundation
