About Me and FoxyLogic

Personal Information:

My name is Mikkel Holmen Andersen, 37 year old and born in Aarhus, Denmark. Married and have two children.

I have a PhD in molecular and structural biology on the subject: receptor - ligand interactions. My main research interest is in protein chemistry. I have a strong background and experience with protein expression and purification, and with the subsequent aspects of protein characterisation by HPLC, sequencing, and mass spectrometry. I find special interest in the more technical parts of protein chemistry such as proteomics and bioinformatics.

I have done a 2-year post doc in Paris centred on chromatin modifying proteins involved in transcriptional regulation. I was involved in the purification and characterisation of a ~2 MDa protein complex from nuclear extracts of human cell lines.

Currently, I'm working as a scientist at Borean Pharma ApS, Aarhus, Denmark.

Other Interests:

I spend some of my time programming modules for instrument control. The Fermentor Control Program has the most focus and is continuously evolving as I and users get ideas to new features. The system includes an artificial intelligence control module (fuzzy logic and neural networks) to maximise product output. Currently the program is used by university departments, institutions and commercial users worldwide.

I also programmed a spectrophotometer data acquisition tool including a kinetic data analysis module, which is currently used in a biochemistry laboratory course at the Department of Molecular and Structural Biology, University of Aarhus, Denmark, some SQL Database tools to download and generate Access and MySQL databases of ~570.000 proteins including a query tool to datamine the databases, and server programs for automated database retrieval for local DNA and protein analysis tools.

About FoxyLogic:

FoxyLogic was born in 1997 but at this stage it is nothing more than a fancy name and logo to stick on the software that I have made.
