Mark Gomelsky Google Scholar Profile


Mark Gomelsky is a Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Wyoming. He earned his Ph.D. degree (1991) in Biological Sciences from Institute for Genetics and Selection of Industrial Microorganisms (Moscow, Russia) and received post-doctoral training at Institut Pasteur in Paris and University of Texas Medical School in Houston. Since establishing his laboratory at the University of Wyoming (1999), Dr. Gomelsky has focused primarily on bacterial signal transduction and photoreception. His laboratory has been among pioneers in the field of c-di-GMP-dependent signaling in bacteria, which turned out to play important roles in biofilm formation and virulence. Some of the foundational studies on c-di-GMP enzymology and sensing were recognized among the most influential papers published in the Journal of Bacteriology in the past century. Dr. Gomelsky’s long-standing interest in bacterial photoreception has resulted in the discovery and characterization of a novel class of photoreceptors, and in engineering of photoactivated enzymes for optogenetic applications. He has been elected as Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is the author of > 90 research papers, reviews and opinion articles.
