CHRONICLE Nina Borisovna Varshaver (January 27, 1914–January 20, 2005) Genetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences from 1978) for the rest of her life. For many years, Varshaver was Shapiro’s deputy and successfully combined extensive research and organizational activities. All those years, Varshaver carried out intense stud- ies on the most important problems of the genetics of somatic cells. She was one of the first members of the All-Russia (formerly All-Union) Society of Geneticists and Breeders. The patterns of spontaneous and induced mutagenesis constituted the main subject of her studies. A series of studies on the induction of gene mutations in mammalian cells by oncogenic DNA viruses is of special interest. On the basis of their results, the State Committee for Inventions and Discoveries of the Soviet Union certified (in 1986) a discovery made by Var- shaver, Shapiro, and M.I. Marshak. Further develop- ment of research in this field led to the discovery of some characteristic features of viral mutagenesis and a complete parallelism between the mutagenic and Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
