Covers molecular genetics of pro- and eukaryotes, molecular microbiology and molecular virology
Examines molecular and genetic elements of eukaryotic cells, function of chromosomes and chromatin, genetic changes in malignant degeneration and more
Provides research data on synthesis and isolation of genes from natural foci, creation of plasmoid- and virus-based vectors, and obtaining of recombinant DNA molecules for establishing gene banks of microorganisms, animals and humans
Molecular Genetics, Microbiology and Virology addresses theoretical and applied topics in molecular genetics of pro- and eukaryotes, molecular microbiology and molecular virology. The journal focuses on studies of the genetic apparatus of microorganisms, the search for genetic forms of metabolism, genetic mapping of pathogenic causative agents, investigations of the structure and functions of extrachromosomal factors of heredity and migratory genetic elements, and theoretical studies on the mechanisms of genetic regulation. Topics include the molecular and genetic elements of eukaryotic cells, the function of chromosomes and chromatin, the nature of genetic changes in malignant degeneration, hereditary diseases. Also covered are the molecular bases of virology, including viral and cellular genomes integration and viral persistence. The journal's scope of coverage includes the biotechnological production of hormones, components of antiviral vaccines, and diagnostic and therapeutic preparations.
The journal publishes original researches and reviews in the field of genetics, microbiology, and virology with emphasis on the molecular mechanisms of structural functional organization of microorganisms and cells.
