About Georgy Kurakin

I am a biologist and bioinformatician with a primary expertise area in the evolution of multicellularity and bacteria-host interaction. Now I perform my own bioinformatic project in evolution of oxylipin signalling in bacteria. I am a Member of the Royal Society of Biology (MRSB) and a Member of International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). 

Beside this, I work at a university as a teaching assistant conducting laboratory and discussion classes in biochemistry. Furthermore, I am a scientific journalist and pop-sci lecturer. I am open to work from media outlets seeking interesting texts in microbiology, evolutionary biology, medicine, general biology, biochemistry and beyond.  

In this blog, I keep you posted about the progress of my own research project and feature interesting works of my colleagues which fit into my area of expertise.

What is to be multicellular? A question from a novel cave bacterium

We know two main types of multicellularity which until recently were enough to classify all bacterial multicellular-like behaviours. But a novel cave bacterium — Jeongeupia sacculi — is a discovery which goes beyond this framework and urges to redefine multicellularity
