Me after being productive
Me after being productive

Hi, my name is Torsten Waldminghaus, and I'm currently Postdoc at the Norwegian Radium Hospital in Oslo (Norway) in Skarstad lab. I was let to OpenWetWare by google, searching for certain protocols. I just started my Postdoc time and I'm going to set up a bunch of methods that have not been done in my new lab. So I benefit a lot from people sharing their protocols on the internet and thought it might be a good idea to also let the world participate on my wisdom and experince. That's why I'm here. If you still want to you can email me through OpenWetWare. Below I'll describe a bit more about myself and the stuff I'm interested in.



  • 2007-2011: Postdoc at the Department of Cell Biology, Institute for Cancer Research, The Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo (Norway) in the lab of Kirsten Skarstad
  • 2004-2007: PhD at the Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany) PhD-thesis: ‘RNA-thermometers in bacteria’ in the lab of Franz Narberhaus
  • 2002-2004: Studies in bioinformatics at the University of applied science Berlin (Germany) Master-thesis: ‘In silico analysis and selection of RNA secondary structures’ at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology under supervision of Volker Patzel
  • 1999-2002: Studies in biology at the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University Greifswald (Germany) Diploma-thesis: ‘Investigations on the expression of clpX in Bacillus subtilis’ at the Division for Microbial Physiology and Molecular Biology in the lab of Michael Hecker
  • 1996-1999: Basic studies in biology at the University of Potsdam (Germany)

Grants and Awards

  • 2008-2010: Two year postdoc grant of the German Research Council (DFG)
  • 2008: Ruth Massenberg Prize of Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany) for outstanding PhD thesis
  • 2008: Travel grant of FEMS
  • 2006: Travel grant of Ruth und Gert Massenberg Stiftung

Research interests

In general I like bacteria and complex systems.

A bit more detailed I enjoy working on:

  • Regulation of replication in bacteria
  • Synthetic chromosomes
  • Searching funny patterns on chromosomes or in proteins
