His research interests involved analysis of the RNA structure, building RNA databases (5S rRNA database, the first noncoding RNA databases), structure and practical applications of catalytic RNAs. Currently his research is focused on the genomic organization of the tRNA genes and tRNA-gene clusters and identification of genomic regions encoding tRNA-like structures.

Maciej’s additional interests involve history of research in molecular biology, problems of the origins of life on Earth and the history of the Middle Aages and World War II.
