Greetings! My name is Ruslan. In 2018, I received a bachelor's degree, and in 2020, a master's degree - both in biochemistry at the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague. The topic of my research focused on “The Effect of Silver Nanoparticles on the Dynamics of Microtubule Cytoskeleton in Plants”. Deciding to change the field of professional activity, I joined the laboratory of Mikael Kubista to study genes transcription at the single-cell level under supervision of Lukáš Valihrach.
