Vassilis Papasotiropoulos received a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Biology, University of Patras, Rio, Greece, in 2000. The thesis entitled "Genetic structure and phylogenetic relationships of grey mullets (Teleostei: Mugilidae)." Papasotiropoulos received a B.S. degree in agronomy agricultural from the University of Athens, Athens, Greece, in 1993. Papasotiropoulos's research experience includes PI at the laboratory of Genetics, Department of Greenhouse Crops and Floriculture, and TEI of Messolonghi, Greece, since 2006. From 2002 to 2005, Papasotiropoulos served as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Applied Genomics, Public Health Research Institute, University of Medicine and Dentistry, Newark, NJ, USA. From 2000 to 2001, Papasotiropoulos served as a Research Associate at the Division of Molecular Genetics, Department of Biology, University of Patras, Greece. Papasotiropoulos research interest includes fabrication of protein microarrays, printing microarrays with nucleic acid binding proteins (NBP's), expressed either in yeast or E. coli and functional characterization of their binding properties, recombination cloning using the Gateway cloning system of PCR amplified C, elegans ORF's corresponding to nucleic acid binding proteins (NBP's), expression of the selected ORF's in yeast and E. coli. Papasotiropoulos also involved in genetic structure and phylogenetic relationships of Atherina boyeri populations using molecular markers; genetic analysis of cultivated crops using molecular, biochemical, and morphological characters; conservation genetics of endangered plant species; genetic structure and phylogenetic relationships among different organisms at various taxonomical levels using molecular markers.
