We have reported European bat species infected by White-nose syndrome, a disease devastating American population. We have also showed that the fungus is a generalist pathogen attacking bat species of very diverse ecological traits.

White-nose syndrome without borders: Pseudogymnoascus destructans infection tolerated in Europe and Palearctic Asia but not in North America
Published in Scientific Reports, 2016
We have reported White-nose syndrome in Asia and quantified fungal loads of bat wings using qPCR. Surprisingly loads we observed were higher than loads detected in American bats that have way way worse response to the infection.

Sequence-dependent separation of trinucleotides by ion-interaction reversed-phase liquid chromatography—A structure-retention study assisted by soft-modelling and molecular dynamics
Published in Journal of Chromatography A, 2016
We showed nearly-deterministic relation of retention times of trinucleotides with their nucleotide composition. We modeled properties of trinucleotide molecules that actually explained most of the variability of the original model. I was invited to this study to construct models.

Taken from the abstract: We find strong evidence for higher rates of deleterious mutation accumulation, lower levels of segregating polymorphisms and arrested GC-biased gene conversion in asexuals as compared with sexuals. Taken together, our study conclusively shows that predicted consequences of genome evolution under asexuality can indeed be found in natural populations.

Are there any universal consequences of asexuality in animals? We have collected genomes of 24 asexual animals and found that indeed there is not any really universal.

I assisted students on individual basis, helping them to understand the practical exercises and getting them done. The practicals I have assisted to were covering concepts like Hardy Weinberg equilibrium, statistical testing of the departure from HW, calculation and interpretation of fst statistics between populations, effect of selection on genotype frequencies in case of heterozygosity advantage, and migration.
