My name is Johan Bengtsson-Palme. I am currently a postdoctoral associate to Jo Handelsman’s lab at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While in the US, I am on a temporary leave from my position as assistant professor at the Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. My research concerns microbiology and microbial ecology, primarily focusing on investigating antibiotic resistance and interactions in bacterial communities through metagenomics and bioinformatics. I also have an interest in molecular taxonomy and improving the quality of reference databases. I work closely with the groups of Joakim Larsson, Jo Handelsman, Erik Kristiansson and Henrik Nilsson.
