Summary

Anders J. Hansen (AJH) has extensive experience working with characterization of genetic material in difficult samples either being aDNA, eDNA, forensic genetics or degraded DNA. AJH was one for the first to use DNA technology to characterize species contents in ancient environmental samples like ice and permafrost. Currently AJH’s research interests predominant focus on forensic genetics as well as genetic identification and discovery by metagenomic analysis of DNA and RNA in complex tissue samples, recent and ancient sediments including permafrost with the aim of describing the composition, regulation and distribution of genes, microorganism, phage’s, viruses and more.
