Laboratory of Animal Genetics

Head: Mariya E. Mikhailova

PhD (Biology),  Associate Professor


Key directions of scientific research:

  • Search for molecular-genetic markers of economically valuable traits and the development of methods allowing the identification of the hidden carriers of hereditary animal diseases;
  • Genetic diversity study of agricultural and wild animals based on molecular methods;
  • Detection of genetic causes of hereditary defects of the cardiovascular system and atopic human diseases;
  • Advancing biotechnology and applying molecular-genetic methods to study hydrobionts in natural biotopes and aquaculture.
