Valery V. Bliskovsky, Ph.D.
Staff Scientist
Head, Genomics Core

Dr. Bliskovsky heads the Genomics Core within the Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Genomics (LCBG).  His main research interests are genomics and bioinformatics. Currently, his primary project is investigating FRAP/mTOR structure and function.  

The Genomics Core provides assistance to LCBG investigators and other CCR investigators, when appropriate. Dr. Bliskovsky's expertise encompasses a variety of genomic applications including, but not limited to, database mining, SNP identification, marker development, experimental design for cloning projects, sequencing and sequence analysis.  He also researches and conducts trials of software products and web-based services required for Core functions. Dr. Bliskovsky uses multiple software packages and services available through NIH and NCI licenses and assists researchers who are using or planning to use these products.
