Georgii Bazykin

Assistant Professor
Center of Life Sciences

Georgii Bazykin graduated from the Department of Biology of the Moscow State University in 2001 and holds a PhD degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University (2007). He is also the Head of Sector of Molecular Evolution at the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the RAS.

Prof. Bazykin’s research interests lie in the field of biological evolution at different levels. He focuses on disentangling the roles of natural selection and non-selective processes in evolution of genotypes, and on clarifying how genetic interactions shape the patterns of evolution and variation. He is particularly interested in evolution of immune system avoidance and drug resistance in pathogens, and in applications of evolutionary reasoning to medical genetics.
