The institute is interested in future investigations of microorganisms and algae populating Lake Baikal.
INSTITUTE OF HUMAN ECOLOGY, IHE (KEMEROVO)
This institute is interested in joint studies for investigating mechanisms of chemical carcinogenesis and development of approaches to prevention and control of harmful processes initiated by chemical carcinogens.
INSTITUTE OF MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR BIOLOGY, IMCB (NOVOSIBIRSK)
Researchers of this institute perform fundamental studies of the organization of animal genomes: Drosophila genome was subjected to fine cytogenetic mapping, and comparative phylogenetic studies were performed on mammalians. These studies were supported by NIH. CRDF supported investigations of the epidemiology of inheritable mitochondrial diseases in Siberia and genetic history of ancient inhabitants of Siberia and America.
The institute plans detailed genetic studies of autochthonous Siberians and ancient Americans.
INSTITUTE OF SOIL SCIENCE AND AGROCHEMISTRY, ISSA (NOVOSIBIRSK)
The institute is interested in collaboration in investigations of soil bacteria.
INSTITUTE OF SYSTEMATICS AND ECOLOGY OF ANIMALS, ISEA (NOVOSIBIRSK)
The ISTC, CRDF, and the BioTechnology Engagement Program have supported the following research at this institute: (a) investigations of the epidemiology of influenza virus in wild birds, poultry, and pigs and (b) investigations of genetic and antigenic diversity of hantaviruses circulating in the Asian part of Russia.
The institute plans to develop the following projects in collaboration with American colleagues: development of biological methods for controlling populations of forest pests and insects harmful for agriculture; genetic studies of parasites found in human patients and in Siberian animals; investigation of factors affecting migration of birds in Western Siberia, Kazakhstan, and Middle Asia; and investigation of rare birds of Northern Asia.
