Anastasia Baryshnikova

Associate Research Scholar, Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Lecturer in Molecular Biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics.


Dr. Baryshnikova studies biological networks and their role in determining cellular phenotypes. In many model organisms, such as, for example, the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, nearly all genes have been scrutinized from a myriad of different angles. However, despite the availability of this incredible wealth of data, we still have little understanding of how genes interact with one another to carry out fundamental cellular functions and respond to external stimuli. The goal of Dr. Baryshnikova's research is to construct a global unified picture of the functional organization of a simple eukaryotic cell by computationally integrating hundreds of different genomic and proteomic datasets. This global cellular network would serve as a repository for our collective knowledge and a model for more complex cellular systems.
