Prof. Paweł Golik is the director of the Institute of Genetics and Biotechnology, leader of the mitochondrial gene expression research group, and an avid popularizer of genetics.

Prof. Paweł Golik talks about reading and interpreting genomes. He studies the role of nuclear encoding of proteins involved in RNA metabolism in mitochondria, and using yeast genomes in the modelling of human disorders in which nuclear control of mitochondrial genome expression is disrupted

“…and he cried out in a mighty voice that he’d had enough, but Information so swathed and swaddled him in its three thousand tangled paper miles, that he couldn’t move and had to read on…”

From Polish science-fiction author Stanisław Lem’s “The Sixth Sally, or How Trurl and Klapaucius Created a Demon of the Second Kind to Defeat the Pirate Pugg”
