Ladies and gentelmen!
Biotechnologies have been attracting increasing attention recently. Less than half a century ago such words as "chromosome", "cloning", "gene" were almost unknown for common people and the best way to meet them was to read science fiction novels. Now broadcasting news are full of information about the latest achievements and discoveries in the field of molecular biology and biotechnologies.
In the last forty years molecular
biology has been taking step by step from defining the structure of DNA and
decoding genetic information to finding out the sequence of separate bases in
genome of bacterium (and more complicated organisms) and cloning of animals.
Russian scientists have taken an important part in becoming of modern molecular
biology and biotechnologies. Scientific research of A.N. Belozersky, V.A.
Engelgardt, A.S. Spirin, N.V. Timofeev-Resovsky will always remain one of the
greatest diamonds in the world treasury of knowledge. Yours
However, in spite of the fact that biotechnologies became an essential part of our life long time ago, only few people know indeed what this term exactly means. What is cloning? What about transgenic animals? What is a cancer and is it possible to cure it? AIDS: why is it so dangerous? Why do so many public and religious organizations stand against cloning? The list of questions has got no limits!
This section of our site was designed in the aim of helping our visitors to understand that big flows of information he receives. Here you can find comments of experts concerning news of bio-tech world, information on a cancer, AIDS, cloning, transgenic organisms. We also do our best to acquaint our visitors with the leading Russian experts in the field of biotechnology, molecular biology and bioinformatics. We're expecting your understanding and support.
