Abbas was born in 1993. He completed his diploma in biology at the age of 18 years (2011) from Shahid Beheshti High School. He obtained a B.Sc. degree in Genetics from the Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz in spring 2015. Then, he studied Masters of Biology-Biochemistry at the University of Kashan. His special research interests focus on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, especially their application in melanoma and lung cancer research. He is also an enthusiastic fan of cancer epigenetics topics.


“I had the pleasure of supervising Abbas Salavaty in his masters’ dissertation on the bioinformatic and systems biology analysis of lncRNAs involved in lung adenocarcinoma. Abbas is a creative thinker with an ability to maintain the quality of his work at its highest possibility while he pays attention to the quantity as well. He has an insightful, quick, and sharp mind and is really talented in bioinformatics and systems biology. I am certain that he is going to continue to do valuable and creative things in his future.”

– Dr. Ali Najafi Ph.D. of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

“I am writing this letter to give my highest possible recommendation for my student, Mr. Abbas Salavaty. He has good knowledge in Molecular Genetics and Bioinformatics. He was among the best students in different courses such as Oncology and Genetics. Abbas has also always taken his role seriously in the research team. He’s at his best in a group environment, and is consciously proactive at getting full involvement of all other team members to derive the best results possible. In my unbiased opinion, he has a rich blend of creativity, temperament, and discipline required for research.”

– Dr. Mohammadreza Hajjari Ph.D. of Molecular Genetics

“It is a sincere pleasure for me to write this recommendation letter for Abbas Salavaty, who was my student in Advanced Molecular Biology and I supervised his masters’ dissertation. I really got excited that his papers obtained over 160 citations by the end of his masters. He has good knowledge and skills in the field of bioinformatics and systems biology. He tries to solve any biomedical problem by means of bioinformatic and systems biology analyses and always help his peers regarding such matters. He is so enthusiast about bioinformatics and systems biology and I believe that he will be one of the pioneers in this field. He also drafts and writes the scientific papers as high quality and of high standard as experienced professors.”

– Dr. Zahra Rezvani Ph.D. of Molecular Genetics

“Abbas Salavaty was my student in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Proteomics lecture. I have known Abbas since 2011 when he attended the Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz as a B.Sc. student in Genetics. Abbas is one of the most outstanding students I have ever taught at the SCU of Ahvaz. His questioning and scientific mind is really exceptional. It is so wonderful to me how he could work on 6 high-quality scientific papers during the last two years of his Bachelors and the first year of his Masters. His energetic personality in scientific issues is admirable.”

– Dr. S. Reza Kazemi Nezhad Ph.D. of Molecular Biology

“To whom it may concern, I have known Mr. Abbas Salavaty since 2016 as a graduate student in University of Kashan at Department of Cell and Molecular Biology. He has passed the Bioinformatics and Principles of research and technology with me where he was one of my top students. All tests which I gave to check student’s understanding the subject matter were passed by Mr. Abbas Salavaty with good and excellent results. Moreover, he has always shown interest in my courses. During this time, he has shown himself as a promising young specialist and researcher. He has successfully passed his MSc thesis and has submitted several papers to international journals and conferences. I found Mr. Abbas Salavaty as a hardworking, intelligent, dependable and purposeful student.”

HOTAIR-mediated carcinogenesis in different cancers

This is a review article titled “HOTAIR: an oncogenic long non-coding RNA in different cancers” which was published in the journal of Cancer Biology and Medicine in 2015. Fortunately, this is one of the top ten most cited papers on the association of HOTAIR lncRNA and different cancers.

What is computational (in-silico) biology?

In-silico Biology is a compound name that is apparently composed of two words, In-silico and Biology! In-silico is a term that means “done on a computer”. In-silico biology is mostly used for referring to the computational modeling of biological systems, however, in its simplest and most general form means all biological investigations and analyses that are done via computers. In this post, we will distinguish between in-silico biology, systems biology and bioinformatics.

How I got interested in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

In this post, I’m going to talk about my interest in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology. Interestingly, as Bioinformatics and Systems Biology are of multidisciplinary fields, my enthusiasm about these fields originate from multiple sources.
