In Russian

The Educational and Research Laboratory of Paleogenomics was created to train museum specialists with skills in using methods from the natural sciences for studying biological samples deposited in Russia’s museum collections.

As part of the research work and the educational process, the staff of the Laboratory of Paleogenomics work with DNA extracted from anthropological material, as well as tissues of extinct animals and plants.

Laboratory staff and their colleagues develop new methods for bioinformatic analysis of genetic data that are obtained by genome decoding.
