The University newspaper Titan UiO features an interview titled "Pointless to clone a pretty cat" written by Bjørn Røsjø.

We do not clone cats in the lab, but we are very interested in epigenetics. Did you know that only female cats can have three colours? Learn more about these calico cats in the featured article and why epigenetics is important in deciding the colour patterns of the cat. Ragnhild Eskeland explains why you will never get a carbon-copy of your favourite cat if you wish clone it.

We are very happy to receive research funds from Norwegian Cancer Society. These funds will help us get a better understanding of epigenetic regulation and chromatin organisation in prostate cancer cells. This knowledge may be helpful for future diagnosis and understanding cancer progression.

We are grateful to receive research funding for our study on paracetamol and its the neurodevelopmental effect on the unborn child. This is part of a study in the strategic research environment PharmaTox at University of Oslo. Our study is focusing on the mechanistic understanding of paracetamol using human embryonic stem cells as a model for early human development.
