Editorial Board & Editorial Advisory Board

The journal covers relevant theoretical and practical aspects of the molecular genetics of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, molecular microbiology, and molecular virology. The journal’s scope includes the following:
-          studies of the genetic apparatus of microorganisms,
-          the search for genetic metabolism forms and genetic mapping of pathogenic causative agents,
-          investigations of the structure and functions of extrachromosomal factors of heredity and migratory genetic elements,
-          theoretical studies on the mechanisms of genetic regulation,
-          the molecular and genetic elements of eukaryotic cells,
-          the functioning of chromosomes and chromatin,
-          the nature of genetic changes in malignant degeneration,
-          hereditary diseases, and
-          the molecular basis of virology, including viral and cellular genomes integration and viral persistence.
 The journal aims to disseminate research findings on genetic engineering, including 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. It also seeks to publish articles on the biotechnological production of hormones, components of antiviral vaccines, and diagnostic and therapeutic preparations.
In addition to original articles, each issue contains literature and book reviews, news, and information on congresses and conferences.
The Molecular Genetics, Microbiology and Virology Journal was launched in 1983. Since 1988, it has been translated into English and distributed to subscribers outside Russia. Since 2007, the journal has been translated by the International Academic Publishing Company Nauka / Interperiodica. Both print and electronic versions are available by subscription.
The journal is intended for researchers, academics, and doctors interested in the problems of molecular genetics, microbiology, virology, and cancer proteomics.
