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.

A new paper on the blood microbiome of HCV patients might close a gap in our recent work

Our paper on bacterial lipoxygenases has been cited by the group working on a problem of HCV-related cirrhosis. The context of this citation might provide the solution of a long-lasting problem of our project and valuable insights in the role of lipoxygenases in Sphingomonadales bacteria.
