WHY RUSSIAN SCIENCE IS ALIVE YET?
 
Last decade many respected scientists using their authority certified the fact of the Russian science break-up either already taking place or laying ahead (after 2-3 years). However, nine post-Soviet years have already passed, and the science in Russia though having undergone considerable destruction and devastation has not perished. It is important to understand: at the expense of what it is living.
 
STRESS PROTEINS: A KEY FOR LIFE RIDDLE SOLUTION
 
Stress proteins are the most interesting objects for researches, which can become a key for understanding many secrets of life. Soon there will be made allocation of genes responsible for the "preparations for stresses" process, and then... It is even difficult to propose, what exotic discoveries it could result in. At the Laboratory of Physiological Genetics of the Irkutsk Siberian Institute of Plant Physiology and Biochemistry of the SB RAS the researches were started, which may be called pioneering ones and the results considered as a priority are obtained.
 
FOR THE SAKE OF HEALTH, FOR THE SAKE OF LIFE-2
 
According to opinion of the majority of experts, the 21st Century will be a century of priority researches in the field of Life Sciences. Today the "SiS" keeps on acquainting the readers with operative information on the last achievements of world scientific thought in the field of biology and medicine.
 
LOVE AND CHEMISTRY
 
During centuries the writers and the poets glorified fine feeling, while the scientists searched for the concrete answer to specific question: "What is love and what does it consist of?" The Science, as it is known, does not stand still ... And already today there are objective proofs that the "origin of love" is connected with a series of chemical processes occurring within human organism.
 
SCIENCE AND PRESS. MYTHS AND REALITY
