Original Russian Text Copyright © 2005 by Zakharov, Shumnyi. CHRONICLE original hypothesis of periodical reprogramming of the genome. Cytological analysis of the differential activity of genes expanded into studies of the molecular cytoge- netic organization of specific regions of eukaryotic chromosomes, in particular, the organization and evolu- tionary transformation of multigenic loci. Gene fami- lies of Balbiani rings were studied along with their pro- tein products, and several new mobile elements were discovered in Chironomidae. Kiknadze and her colleagues constructed high-reso- lution cytological photomaps of polytene chromo- somes of chironomids, which made it possible to intro- duce these organisms as model subjects for studying the evolution of genomes and the genetic consequences of anthropogenic impact on living organisms. In partic- ular, the tests developed were employed in estimating the environmental pollution with radionuclides in the framework of programs “Remote Consequences of the Radiation Effects of Nuclear Weapon Testing at the Semipalatinsk Testing Site on the Population of the Altaiskii Krai” and “Studies of the Genetic Conse- On February 9, 2005, Prof. Iya Ivanovna Kiknadze, quences of Nuclear Weapon Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
