Dear Visitor,

This site is the prime source of information on my educational and professional backgrounds (see the right column), research and biotech consulting, publications, teaching, and some of the scientific conferences I have attended. I do teach four classes in Synthetic Biology, Bioinformatics and Molecular Evolution, Genomics, and Molecular Genetics. I also do supervise master and doctoral students. In fact, you can have a look here at any research or news article I have published. Full citation statistics of my research papers are also provided. You can also find my Doctoral thesis, patents, and News and Views papers making comments on my research publications.

I received an outstanding scientist award from the 7th Edition of International Research Awards on SENSING TECHNOLOGY on August 5th, 2023! I was also acknowledged by an award from the Bulgarian national contest for scientific excellence for researchers of all areas over 35 years old organized by the Union of the Scientists in Bulgaria. My research was awarded for scientific excellence achieved in the fields of synthetic biology, bioinformatics and molecular evolution. The ceremony was held in the aula of Sofia University on November 2nd, 2015. Our recent research publication is an editors' choice of the American Chemical Society and is among the most popular in the ACS Synthetic Biology! Four young scientists working under my supervision on my projects have won 4 awards (1, 2, 3, 4) from 3 national science contests, 1 start-up award, and 2 teacher awards (1 and 2) since 2021, aggregated 7 awards! You can also the News paper on the awards in ScienceBG, in Bulgarian or on the website of Sofia University in English. You can send me your feedback here. The news on our awards was also featured on the website of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" (see the image below).

You may see also my research in RNA synthetic, systems, and computational biology, bioinformatics and biochemistry of non-coding RNAs, computational design of RNA switches as gene expression control elements, computational and real high-throughput screening of chemical compounds for drug discovery, drug design based on antisense oligonucleotides, design and application of programmable microfluidics for automated biochemical microarrays, molecular modeling and computation, and nanobiotechnology. You may also use 15 essential and very useful bioinformatics applets on my application page, one bioinformatics database, and programs for computational design of allosteric ribozymes.


Sincerely yours,
