RESEARCH INTEREST

Human molecular genetics, genetic engineering, molecular phylogenetics, molecular cytogenetics. Specific scientific interest: Studying the structure and regulation of human SOX genes expression: identification of control elements involved in transcriptional regulation and analysis of the roles of Wnt and Sonic Hedgehog (SHH) signalling pathways in control of their expression; Studying the involvement of epigenetic mechanisms in the control of SOX genes expression; Investigation of the roles of SOX genes in maintaining pluripotency, cell fate determination and differentiation; Studying the roles of SOX genes in oncogenesis. High-resolution phylogenetic studies of mitochondrial DNA variation in contemporary Serbian population; Detection of micro-deletion syndromes by Fluorescent in situ Hybridization (FISH).
