Carlijn is an intern in the GenDx software team since February 2021. She is now completing her bachelor’s degree in bioinformatics at the Hanzehogeschool Groningen. Carlijn did her first internship at the Princess Máxima Center in Utrecht where she looked into the use of expression data to indicate the presence of gene fusions for children that are diagnosed with cancer. Now that she is doing her second and final internship at GenDx, she will develop an algorithm for the detection of mutations in human oncogenes associated with hematological malignancies.
