Elena V. Ignatieva
Elena V. Ignatieva was born in Novokuznetsk, Russia. She received the biologist specialist degree from the Novosibirsk State University in 1985. She received the Ph.D. degree in Biology from the Institute of Cytology and Genetics in Novosibirsk in 1992. Presently, Elena Ignatieva is a Senior Staff Scientist (Laboratory of Evolutionary Bioinformatics and Theoretical Genetics, Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Novosibirsk, Russia). Her primary research interests include transcription regulation, transcription regulators, transcription factor binding sites, molecular endocrinology, lipid metabolism, obesity, diabetes, nuclear receptor gene family, liver-specific gene expression, genes regulated by SF-1, PPARs and SREBPs, genomic databases, databases on transcription regulation, development and integration of databases, reconstruction of gene networks, genetic variation. The majority of her studies are focused on databases on transcription regulation (TRRD, LM-TRRD, ES-TRRD), transcription factor binding sites recognition, and reconstruction and analysis of the gene networks.
