Sergey Nurk

Hello, dear guest.

My name is Sergey Nurk and I live in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

In 2011 I graduated with honors from SPbSU Department of Software Engineering

Currently I am a PhD student in Saint-Petersburg Academic University.

 

As you probably noticed, I work at Pavel Pevzner's Algorithmic Biology Lab on the developement of SPAdes genome assembler and several projects in the field of comparative genomics.

My primary interests are:

  • algorithms design
  • software design
  • computational genomics
