Professional interests/research projects:

Scientific research based on the use of complex, integrative approaches aimed at characterizing and establishing the role of genetic and epigenetic factors in the pathogenesis of socially significant diseases, in a comprehensive assessment of health status, and assessment of sports potential.
In R&D carried out over the past 5 years, methods of whole genome analysis are actively used: high-density genotyping on the platform of DNA chips (Illumina) with a coverage density of up to 5 million SNPs; genome-wide analysis of DNA methylation on the HumanMethylation450 platform and HumanMethylation Epic BeadChip (Illumina); analysis of genomes and exomes using next generation sequencing (NGS) technology - IonProton, Illumina HiSeq2500.
Main topics of scientific interest: associative genetic studies for the assessment of physical potential; epigenetic research on oncology, analysis of whole exome sequencing data, personalized medicine technologies, population genetics.
Original bioinformatic approaches have been developed for processing and annotating sequencing data obtained using new generation sequencers, high-density DNA chips.
