DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGY, MEDICAL GENETICS AND ECOLOGY

Ivanov Vladimir Petrovich, Doctor of Medical Sciences, professor, honoured science worker of the Russian Federation, academician of RANS, honoured professor of Karaganda Medical Academy has been head of the department of Biology, Medical Genetics and Ecology since 1987. The department medico-genetic laboratory research is aimed at studying genetic foundations of the multifactorial diseases development in a human being.

The department conducts intensive study in the field of cytogenetics and molecular human genetics. Polymorphism of heterochromatic regions is studied. Chromosomal aberrations (deletions, inversions, translocations, duplications) are considered as indications of spontaneous human mutagenesis. Besides, functional activity of the ribosomal genes in various forms of multifactorial pathology in children and adult population is studied. The department staff have performed a series of studies aimed at searching for new candidate genes of socially-significant human diseases.
