Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): Astrakhan state university (ASU) was founded in 1932. Now it is known as one of the largest multi-purpose educational institutions in the Caspian region. Astrakhan state university has old traditions of academic activity and it is one of the most quickly modernising universities in Russia. Many scientists working at the university are widely known not only in Russia, but also abroad thanks to their serious contribution to various spheres of science. ASU is classical university which realizes researches and student's training in most sections of modern science including physics and mathematics, information and comunication technologies, socio-economic sciences and humanities, jurisprudence, history, biology, food, agriculture and fisheries, biotechnology, environment and security, nanosciences, etc.
Expertise offered Used methods: anaphase and the metaphase analysis, studying of types of a pathology mitosis, an estimation mitosis activity, research rootformed abilities of plants, an estimation of a level of aberrations and a spectrum of chromosomes a method cultivation of lymphocytes of peripheral blood of the person. In the long term the project is directed on studying cytogenetic mechanisms of influence nanostucturing materials on alive systems, development of methods genoprotecturing actions nanoporous materials and reduction of possible risk of chromosomal infringements at the personnel working on manufactures, connected with industrial synthesis nanotubes.
Scientific keywords Nanostructured materials Cytogenetic testing Lymphocyte Culturing Genotoxicity Mitosis Pathology
