Matthias Ehrlich has studied biology with focus on molecular biology and physiology. He got his master’s degree at the University of Potsdam after completing his thesis in the field of plant cell wall biosynthesis at the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology. In addition, he got a graduation as a biological technical assistant. Before he came to Norway, he worked as a scientific fellow at the biological department of LMU Munich focused on enzyme activity and redox regulation in fatty acid biosynthesis. Within these years he got to know different molecular biologic and protein biochemical methods. During the last years, Matthias acquired practical skills at Norwegian dairy farms and since 2018 he is working in production at both Geno and SpermVital.
