History
It is established as a Society under the same name by Contract between GIS-Transfer Center – Fondation and Institute of Mechanics of BAS in 21.03.2011 in Sofia. The mission of Center is to develop transfer-activity for common use and to achieving specific scientific and research targets in accordance of topics of competence of its experts.
Services
1. Studying internet data bases for human and organism genomes in the environment, in order to apply the methods of molecular bioinformatics and systems biodynamics for supplying with estimations for health, medical and economical utility, and potential risks.
  • Identification and annotation of regulators in biochemical networks and physiological systems in various cases of highly widespread diseases (cancer, cardio-vascular disease, diabet etc).
  • Modelling the functions of key regulators in gene expression in order to finding activators and inhibitora of the protein synthesis for various disfunctions of the cell metabolism in norm and pathology.
  • Development and realization of internet-based systems for distance usage and for accomplishing the above-described activities.
2. Model-based mathematical estimations of possibilities for mutual influence between cultivated organismsms and the environment, as well as possibilities for relationship of this influence to the human health.
3. Comparative estimations of the potential risks in case of cultivation and usage of various types of organisms in the context of the modern scientific understanding horizontal gene transfer.
4. Technological transfer of biodynamical methods and models in medicine and ecology for estimating potential risks on the human health, as well as the state (fitness) of agrarian and other organisms in the environment. Development, installation and maintenance of the exploration of eco- and bio- informatic systems for molecular monitoring.

Manager
Valko Petrov

Valko Petrov finished the specialty on Physics in Sofia University St.Kliment Ohridski in 1970. Since 1973 he works for BAS on the questions of mathematical modeling in physiological biophysics, cellular biomechanics and molecular biodynamics. He has Ph.D. on biomechanics and a habilitation on the same topic.During the period 1990-2011 he was a head of the section on Biodynamics and Biorheology in IMech- BAS. He was a leader of International and National projects on the problems of cell signalling by ERK and STAT pathways, and modeling micro-RNA expression. He deals also with model-based investigations on biological and industrial systems of ecological importance.
