Scientists will make a "genetic portrait" of indigenous and small peoples of the Khabarovsk Territory
Employees of the Medical Genetic Research Center of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences with the support of the Governor and the Ministry of Health of the Khabarovsk Territory will conduct research in the most remote areas of the region. Scientists with the help of methods of molecular genetics intend to investigate the genetic history of the peoples of the world and the ways of their settlement. According to experts, blood samples of representatives of indigenous peoples of the Khabarovsk Territory will help trace the genetic history of the population of the Far East. The list of nationalities whose unique gene pools store valuable data includes Nanai, Ulchi, Udege, Evenki, Even, Orochi and Oroki, the press service of the regional government said.
In a letter to the Governor of the region, the director of the Medical Genetic Research Center of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Professor, Doctor of Biological Sciences Yevgeny Ginter emphasized that gene frequencies will be determined using DNA from blood samples collected from volunteers, which will reveal the "genetic portrait" of the people. The sampling of material is planned to be carried out on the basis of hospitals and paramedic points of the Tuguro-Chumikansky, Okhotsk, Ayano-Maisky, named after Polina Osipenko regions. Individual genetic test results will be provided to study participants free of charge.
The Medical Genetic Center of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences is Russia's leading center for the study of the gene pools of the indigenous peoples of Russia. With the support of the Governor and the Ministry of Health of the region in 2012-2013, its specialists conducted the first stage of a genetic-demographic survey of the indigenous population of the region living in the Solar, Komsomolsk, Nikolaevsk and Khabarovsk regions. Laboratory analysis of samples is currently underway.
