Sergey Ovchinnikov received his B.S. in Micro/Molecular Biology from Portland State University and a Ph.D in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Washington in Seattle. In the lab of Dr. David Baker, Sergey worked on algorithms for protein structure determination using evolutionary information. Currently, Sergey is a John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellow at Harvard University. The Ovchinnikov Lab is interesting in developing a unified statistical model of protein evolution to better understand phylogenetics, protein folding, origins of life/multicellularity, and to mine metagenomic “dark matter” sequences to discover new protein families, functions, and protein-protein interactions.
