Dr. Martina Strömvik

Stromvik head shot

Dr. Strömvik leads a bioinformatics research program focusing on complex polyploid genomes of plants (e.g. arctic and temperate Oxytropis sp., and potato wild relatives). She completed a Ph.D. in Crop Sciences (plant molecular genetics of soybean) at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA), and a B.A. in Theoretical Philosophy as well as a M.Sc. in Biology (tissue culture and transformation in Picea abies) at Stockholm University (Sweden). She carried out postdoctoral studies in Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics at University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (USA) working on genomics projects in soybean, Medicago truncatula and loblolly pine. In 2003 she joined McGill’s Department of Plant Science where she pioneered the development of university-wide graduate bioinformatics programs and courses. She serves on national and international grant panels, as Associate Editor for several journals, and as Chair of the Department of Plant Science since 2015.
