PERSONALIA Zoya Sofron’evna Nikoro (9 Feb 1904–13 Oct 1984) (On the 100th Anniversary of Her Birth) From 1926 to 1928, Nikoro worked as a zootechni- cian in the uezd (district) department of the town of Sebet in the Pskov guberniya (region); from 1928 to 1930, she was the head of a state pig-breeding enter- prise of the People’s Commissariat of Land Use of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialistic Republic in the city of Vitebsk. From 1930 to 1932 Nikoro worked as an assistant professor of the Department of Genetics and Breeding of the Institute of Fur Farming of the People’s Commis- sariat of Foreign Trade. Professor Nikolai Petrovich Dubinin, who was then a young, promising geneticist, was the head of the department. Nikoro considered N.P. Dubinin, N.K. Kol’tsov, and S.S. Chetverikov to be her mentors. Nikoro performed her ﬁrst serious research work, which dealt with the analysis of genetic variation in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster and became a classical popu- lation-genetic study, in a research group supervised by Dubinin.
