Mikhail Gelfand (b.1963, Russia) ::: Article

Specialist in the field of computational molecular biology. In 1985 graduated from the Moscow State University, Department of Mechanics. Obtained his MA degree in Mathematics (1993), and PhD degree in Biology (1998). Between 1985-99 he was post-graduate student and research fellow at the Institute of Albumen, the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). Since 1999 has been leading scientist at the State Research Institute of Genetics and Selection of Industrial Microorganisms. Since 2001 has been Director for Science of the Moscow Branch of IntegratedGenomics, Inc. (Chicago, USA). The areas of scientific interests are computational molecular biology, genomics, theory of molecular evolution, semiotics. The main results were obtained in functional analysis of genomic sequences (gene recognition, analysis of alternative splicing, identification of regulatory signals, study of protein-DNA interactions). Winner of the A.A.Baev Prize (1999); International Researcher of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (2001). Author of numerous scientific articles published in Russian and foreign editions, incl. "BioSystems", "Journal of Computational Biology", "Nucleic Acids Research", "Gene", "Biochemistry", "Bioinformatics", "Molecular Biology", etc. Repeatedly participated in various international conferences and symposiums, incl. conferences on bioinformatics and regulation of genome structure (Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Siberian Branch of RAS, 2000, 2002), and also in the national conferences of the Biophysical Association (YSER Research Travel Prize, USA, 2001), etc.
