Research areas:

  • genetic engineering of the specificity of DNA methylotransferases and restriction endonucleases (research on the interactions between protein and DNA, attainment of enzymes with new properties, study of evolutionary relationships in the methylase and nuclease superfamilies);
  • biological effects of the methilation of C-5 DNA of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and the mechanisms of DNA mutation repair;
  • detection of lytic factors of microorganisms (bacteriphage HP1 of Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae).
  • study of pathogenicity determinants of bacteria (Haemophilus influenzae Sb), Neisseria gonorrhoeae;
  • biological role of DNA methylation: the role of the Dam methylase in the development of the HP1 phage of Haemophilus influenzae, the role of the Dam methylase in Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria;
  • DNA restriction and modification phenomena. Cloning of genes responsible for coding restriction endonucleases and DNA methylases.
