Call For Papers

Dear colleague,

July 17, 2017 is the date that marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Full Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Dmitri K. Belyaev (1917–1985), an outstanding scientist, evolutionist and geneticist. In view of this memorable date, the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Novosibirsk, Russia), the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations, the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Vavilov Society of Geneticists and Breeders and Novosibirsk State University will be holding Belyaev Conference, an international event in Novosibirsk (Russia), on August 7–10, 2017.

The scope of the Conference encompasses:
- Animal genetics. Genetic basis of domestication. Behavioral genetics.
- Molecular genetics and Cell biology.
- Bioinformatics.
- Medical genetics. Human genetics. Biomedicine.
- Plant genetics. Genetic basis of plant domestication.
- Biotechnology and agriculture.

Belyaev authored an all-new chapter in the theory of morphogenetic processes that explores interactions between two main factors in evolution: variability and selection. In an attempt to find the answers, he launched a large-scale, still ongoing experiment aimed at reproducing the earliest stage of the animal domestication process, with the silver fox as the test subject. The key was selection for human-friendly responses in the fox. As a result, a unique, world-famous tame fox population was created.
