Igor B. Rogozin0000-0003-0802-4851
Igor Rogozin received his Ph.D. degree in computational biology from the Novosibirsk State University (Russia) in 1992. After that, he was serving as a Visiting Scientist at the Institute of Advanced Technologies in Milan (Italy) and completed his postdoctoral training at the Penn State University (USA). For the last 10 years, Rogozin has been working on various aspects of molecular evolution and comparative genomics as a Staff Scientist at the National Center for Biotechnology Information NLM, National Institutes of Health (USA). He acts also as an Adjunct Lecturer at the Johns Hopkins University (USA). Rogozin serves as an Editorial Board Member of several peer-reviewed journals including BMC Genomics, Open Journal of Genomics, Gene, ISRN Biomathematics, and Briefings in Bioinformatics. He worked as an Associate Editor of Gene and Guest Editor of Advances in Bioinformatics. He authored over 150 papers published in internationally peer-reviewed journals, ranging from Science, Nature, and Current Biology to more specialized journals such as Nucleic Acids Research, BMC Genomics, and Bioinformatics. Rogozin is mainly interested in comparative analysis of completely sequenced genomes, functional and genomic analysis of long noncoding RNAs, phylogenetic analysis of sequences, theoretical analysis of mutagenesis, genome biology of carcinogenesis, computational analysis of functional regions and signals in biological sequences, comparative genomics of introns, and theoretical analysis of pro- and eukaryotic immune systems.
