Elena Valerievna Golubkova, PhD, Department of Genetics and Biotechnology, St.-Petersburg State University. I received my Master Diploma at Department of Genetics of St.- Petersburg State University.
My PhD thesis was "Influence of the alleles of the small bristles (sbr) gene on reproductive functions of females and morphogenesis at Drosophila melanogaster". Postdoctoral, I continue to work at Department of Genetics. Currently, we are investigating the role of evolutionarily conserved RNA-binding protein NXF1 (nuclear export factor) in embryogenesis, spermatogenesis, oogenesis, and neurogenesis and neurodegeneration. The range of interests includes in the first place, developmental genetics and evolution of genes.


Гурский В.В,

Виталий Валерьевич


I received my Master’s degree in Physics from the Saint Petersburg State University (Department of high mathematics and mathematical physics), with the research on group symmetries and exact solutions of nonlinear differential equations. After that, I started working in Theoretical Department of Ioffe Institute of the Russian academy of sciences, where I continue working to the present day. My scientific interests shifted towards mathematical modeling of biological systems. I was mainly interested in developing and studying mathematical models of transcriptional regulation of genes which control Drosophila development. I defended my PhD thesis on this subject from Peter the Great Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University. As a researcher in the Systems biology and bioinformatics lab (headed by Prof. Sergey Nuzhdin) in this University, I focus on investigating mechanisms of transcriptional gene regulation and evolution of these mechanisms. We use deterministic and stochastic models of transcription, calibrated on new experimental data, to formulate the detailed mapping between genotype (the sequence of DNA regulatory regions) and molecular phenotype (the spatio-temporal gene expression patterns) for some genetic networks. With the help of computational experiments in these models, we explore evolutionary characteristics of the regulatory regions and their consequences for the organism.
