 Biography
Research Interest :

 Bioinformatics Expertise: DNA structure, multiple sequence alignment algorithms, sequence repetitiveness, sequence complexity, pattern recognition, non-linear regression, heuristic methods of optimization.
During the last years my work tries to shed light on one of the big questions in comparative genomics: what are the factors affecting gene length, and whether variations in gene length are dependent on organismal evolution. Currently we know that some genes become longer than their predecessors while other genes become shorter; however, whether the sizes of these factions vary randomly in each organism or follow certain tendency remains an open question.
