We are currently focused on the following topics:

  • Genetic variability underlying adaptation of amphibians and reptiles to latitudinal and altitudinal environmental gradients in West Siberia
  • Distribution and genetic variability of emerging pathogens in ectothermic vertebrates, especially ranaviruses
  • Evolution of venom gland toxin transcripts in Old World pit vipers (genus Gloydius)
  • Phylogeographic studies in Siberia and Central Asia – in collaboration with Dr. Boris Levin (Papanin Institute for Biology of Inland Waters, Russian Academy of Sciences) and Dr. Oleg Ermakov (Penza State University, Russia)
