Konstantin Zaytsev, One of Top-5 Young Russian Scientists in Systems Biology, on Systems Biology in Russia
A member of ITMO’s Computer Technologies International Laboratory, Konstantin Zaytsev has recently become the winner of Skoltech Fellowship Program 2019 and entered the top-5 of young Russian scientists in systems biology. The award ceremony took place yesterday in Moscow. In the recent years, the researcher has been focusing on the development of methods for analyzing data on gene activity that allows to identify transcription markers of cell types in mixed samples. In an interview with ITMO.NEWS, Konstantin spoke about his work and his research published in Nature Communications, as well as becoming a successful systems biologist and why it’s possible to achieve that in today’s Russia.
An international team of researchers from ITMO University and the University of Washington in St. Louis has developed a new method for determining cell types in tissue samples. The scientists identified typical signs of genes activity in different cell types and, using this as a basis, made a model capable of recognizing different cell types in mixed samples. As this approach works for all tissues, it can be used to, for example, establish how the ratio of different cell types is associated with the survival of patients with different types of cancer. The results are published in Nature Communications.
An international scientific team has developed a new method of probing topological structures and their topological phase transitions. The method is based on examining the reflection spectrum of EM-waves reflecting off an object from different impact angles. The accuracy of the method’s results has been verified experimentally in both IR and microwave spectra. Results were published in Nature Communications.
