Pioneer works on studying molecular mechanisms of mutagenesis were published in the journal Genetika in the 1960s. In the laboratory of S.I. Alikhanian, studies on molecular mechanisms of genetic transposition were initiated in the late 1960s on the model of bacteriophage transposon Mu (Mutator). Parallel to these studies conducted in the laboratory of plant molecular genetics (Institute of Molecular Genetics, Academy of Sciences of the USSR), which was later named the Laboratory of Functional Genomics (Vavilov Institute of General Genetics, Russian Academy of Sciences), studies on transposition of Ti-plasmid T-DNA of Agrobacterium tumefaciens and works on construction of transgenic plants began in this laboratory. Transgenic plants with the expressed bacterial genes provided a model for the functional genomics. This topic is considered here in detail.
