Our lab was created in June 2015 at the Novosibirsk State University in partnership with Ivo Grosse’s lab at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (Germany)

The laboratory research plan includes the following major topics:
(a) computational transcriptomics for the elucidation of the mechanisms of plant development and revealing the mechanisms of plant-microorganisms evolutionary co-adaptation;

(b) computational genomics: de-novo motif discovery for the prediction of transcription factor binding sites (TFBS) and cis-regulatory modules (CRMs) as well as the reconstruction of gene regulatory networks;

(c) bioinformatics for non-coding RNAs and mRNA hidden coding potential.
The ultimate goal of these investigations is the discovery of the molecular mechanisms regulating plant morphogenesis, stress tolerance and co-adaptation with other organisms in eco-systems.
