Congratulations with March 21st, the International Day of Forests!

Dear colleagues,

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests. The theme of the 2015 International Day of Forests (IDF) is Forests | Climate | Change. 21 March is also World Wood Day and 2015 is the International Year of Soils! Celebrate and spread the word!

World's Oldest Living People Have Their Genomes Sequenced

In the hopes of uncovering the genetic basis for extremely long life spans, scientists have sequenced the genomes of 17 of the world's oldest living people.

Unfortunately, the secret to a long life span remains a mystery for now — a first analysis of the genomes did not reveal any rare genetic mutations that might have been responsible for the participants' extraordinary ages.

The Genome Research and Education Center was awarded a 81.6 million rouble (~ $2.6M) grant from the Russian government

The Ministry of Education and Science of Russian Federation announced the names of 42 winners (from the total of 503 applicants) of the fourth competition for research grants under the guidance of leading scientists (Russian Federation Government Resolution № 220) including the project submitted by our Center in the "Agriculture, forestry and fisheries” area:

“Genomics of the key boreal forest conifer species and their major phytopathogens in the Russian Federation”
The PI of the project is Professor Dr. Konstantin V. Krutovsky, the Scientific Director of the Center.

Congratulations to all the researchers of the Center!
