100 years since the birth of Acad. Roumen Tsanev

The Institute of Molecular Biology is celebrating 100 years since the birth of Acad. Roumen Tsanev. The director of the institute Prof. Iva Ugrinova opened the three-day forum, which will last until 7 October in “Prof. Marin Drinov" Hall of the Academy. Acad. Tsanev formulated the first hypothesis of epigenetic regulation based on the histone code - an idea that has developed into a mainstream of modern science. Histones are the proteins that package DNA in the nucleus of the cell, and their chemical modifications are associated with specific levels of packaging and therefore affect gene expression. Acad. Roumen Tsanev (1922 - 2007) is the founder of Bulgarian molecular biology and the founder of the Institute of Molecular Biology (1960). The main directions of research [...]

International Symposium on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine

BioBlitz survey on invasive alien species (IAS) will be conducted on 21 May 2022, in the region of Pancharevo Lake, Sofia Municipality. The survey has been organised at European level under the COST Action CA17122 Increasing understanding of alien species through citizen science (Alien CSI) (https://iasbioblitz.creaf.cat/). Fish Migration Day will be celebrated as an accompanying event. Fish sampling methods will be demonstrated to the participants and they will be informed about the direct and indirect threats to native ichthyofauna arising from changed hydromorphological conditions and other human impact, including invasive alien species. BioBlitz participants are invited to go out and by using the phone applications ‘Invasive Alien Species in Europe’ and ‘iNaturalist’ (BioBlitz IAS Bulgaria project) to take photos and record observations of alien species to [...]
