Vladimir Noskov, Ph.D.
Staff Scientist

Research Interests and Accomplishments

Dr. Noskov is a Staff Scientist in Synthetic Biology and Bioenergy Group at the JCVI, Maryland. He has extensive experience in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry, as well as considerable background in high molecular weight DNA fragment cloning and operating. He is coauthor on a paper describing human synthetic centromere construction.

Currently he is working on developing new methods to enable efficient genetic manipulations of bacterial genomes housed in yeast. He is also doing transformation-associated recombination (TAR)-cloning of natural DNA pieces from bacterial genomes. Prior to joining the JCVI he worked at NIH in the Chromosome Structure and Function Group, where he invented several new applications for the TAR-cloning method. He is the author of 35 publications and 3 invention patents.

Dr. Noskov graduated from St.-Petersburg State University, Russia. He received his Ph.D. from the same university with a specialty in Yeast Genetics. After earning his Ph.D. he spent 5 years in Japan. While there, he studied chromosomal DNA replication and S-phase checkpoint in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
