The popular science event «The Biology day for everyone»

The Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry loves to talk about science to everyone. In April we proved it when we organized a big event – "Day for all biology". Young scientists gave lectures and conducted the excursion of the best places of the Institute. Children, students and adults have heard stories of luciferin, of fuel from algae, about the battle against viruses, computer modeling of proteins and the creation of GMOs at home. Read on and see how it was.


  • Scientists of the IBCh will create nanosensors for the treatment of women’s cancer science news V.25

    The Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences together with the University of Francois Rabelais (France) and the Rhine-Wall University (Germany) launched an interdisciplinary research MINERVA project. Its goal is to develop biomedical nanosensors for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

  • The structure of the p75 protein will help fight neurological disorders science news V.20

    Researchers of the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry (IBCh) of the Russian Academy of Sciences, in joint collaboration with colleagues from the Institute of Health Carlos III (Madrid, Spain) have identified the spatial structure and signal transduction mechanisms of the p75 protein. This study will help understand how to deal with neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson's. The results of the work are published in the Biophysical Journal and Journal of Biological Chemistry.

  • A study of a jellyfish gene reveals mechanisms of interaction between mutations science news V.12

    A team of biologists from Russia, Czech Republic, Israel, USA, and Spain systematically measured how mutations interact within a protein coding gene. They studied tens of thousands of mutants of the green fluorescent protein from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria. The results, published in Nature, uncover mechanisms of protein evolution and deepen our understanding of why effects of mutations are dependent on the genetic context in which they occur.
