The opening ceremony of Genetics Week was held in the Rosneft pavilion at the Russia Forum with the participation of the famous molecular biologist, head of the Center for Whole Genome Sequencing (hereinafter referred to as the Center) Konstantin Severinov.

As part of the event, Severinov gave a lecture, during which he told visitors to the Rosneft pavilion about the importance of conducting genetic research, which makes it possible to identify the causes of genetic diseases.

During the period from January 17 to 19, in the Rosneft pavilion, the Center’s scientists will talk daily about the latest achievements of Russian geneticists, prospects for the development of science and the practical value of new developments.

On Friday, January 19, a presentation of the genetic program “100,000 Me” will take place. The project is being implemented by the Whole Genome Sequencing Center with the support of Rosneft. The goal of the initiative is to read the genomes of 100 thousand Russians to develop the diagnosis of genetically determined and socially significant diseases, as well as to develop new approaches to their therapy and the creation of appropriate drugs.

Over the weekend, the pavilion will host open days for Moscow State University (January 20) and MIPT (January 21). Representatives of universities will talk about master’s programs in the field of genetics prepared jointly with Rosneft.

Also on January 21, geneticist Irina Zhegulina will present the book “Genetic Lottery”, after which listeners will be able to take part in a quiz and win an autographed copy.

As part of the Genetics Week at the Rosneft pavilion, visitors to the pavilion can take part in thematic quizzes about genetics every day. In addition, in the Cinema Hall of the pavilion, a video about the Whole Genome Sequencing Center is shown several times a day, in which Severinov talks about the work of this unique scientific organization and its significance for the average person, as well as further plans and developments. The center operates with the support of Rosneft within the framework of a technological partnership with the Government of the Russian Federation under the program for the development of genetic technologies.
