Hi, I'm Mehrdad Ameri.
I will write about Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Programming, and Data Science at mehrdadameri.com. My field of study is biotechnology, but I am also interested in bioinformatics and in silico design. Since the path was so obscure for me as a biotechnologist and I hadn’t a professional mentor in bioinformatics, I tried self-education in programming and in silico studies. After lots of attempts, I can see what I’m about to do with my scientific career. For past years, my focus was on systems biology and cancer research. Now I integrated immunotherapy and monoclonal antibodies into my research with the aim of cancer treatment. Based on the skills and knowledge I’ve achieved in past years, I will write about the integration of biotechnology, bioinformatics, and programming in cancer research and protein engineering. Moreover, Data science will be explored at mehrdadameri.com and we will talk about its applications in biotechnology.
Hope you enjoy the content of this blog.

About my research path
In 2012 when I was a freshman in clinical laboratory science I decided to get into the research path. Since then I tried various fields to find the one which suits me the best. However, for many years I was collaborating on research projects to learn useful techniques and become familiar with new areas. Therefore, in the early years, my goal was not to publish the results as an article. Additionally, I mostly sought industrial approaches before focusing on publishing articles. But now I believe that both article and industrial R&D can be beneficial. So I try to be active in both fields. Here are the headings of some areas that I worked on:
- From 2012 to 2014: Antibiotic resistance studies. These researches resulted in finding 3 resistant genes in bacteria (You can see them in NCBI with accession numbers KM235681.1, KM235679.1, and KM235680).
- From 2015 to 2017: in these years I was working on finding potential probiotics in traditionally made yogurt for industrial purposes.
- From 2018 to 2020: Biosensors, aptamer, and systems biology are the main research areas that I have worked on in these years.
- From 2020 to the present: I have decided to focus on systems biology in cancer research to find potential targets for monoclonal antibody development and immunotherapy.
