About Annika Lea Boten
I´m a Master thesis student at the MSNZ in Würzburg (AG Burger). In my thesis I currently try to decipher the location of Double-strand breaks in paraspeckle deficient cells by using BLISS sequencing. Before my excursion into the field of DNA damage repair and RNA research, I did my Master studies (Biochemistry) at the University of Würzburg with a focus in Infection biology and Virology. During an internship at the Överby lab at the University of Umeå (Sweden) working on an RNA virus, I first came in contact with RNA research and found my liking for it. Before that I did my Bachelor studies at the University of Jena and a biotechnical training at the School of life Science Hamburg. I´m a member and volunteer of the jGBM (youth organization German society of biochemistry and molecular biology) and in my free time I have co-organized Scientific symposia in the past.
