The 13th European Cytogenomic Conference ECA2021 is over
The 13th European Cytogenomic Conference, which took place on a digital platform from July 3 to 5, 2021, has concluded. The Conference allowed the exchange of scientific information in modern cytogenomics. As part of the program, scientists from more than 12 countries presented reports on various issues of molecular cytogenetics. Researchers of the FSBI RCMG Cytogenetics Laboratory (Dr. Shilov., Head of the laboratory), who are members of the European Association of Cytogeneticists, took an active part in the work of the Conference.
The poster session included the following RCMG researchers’ presentations:
N.V. Shilova, D.Med.Sc.: Nadezda Shilova, Marina Minzhenkova, Zhanna Markova, Darya Yurchenko 3.P17 «Genetic characteristics and clinical consequences of constitutional ring chromosomes».
M.E. Minzhenkova, Cand.Med.Sc.: Marina Minzhenkova, Zhanna Markova, Nadezda Shilova 3.P6 «Five cases of constitutional neocentric supernumerary marker chromosomes».
Zh.G. Markova, Cand.Biol.Sc.: Zhanna Markova, Marina Minzhenkova, Anastasiya Tarlicheva, Nadezhda Shilova 3.P29 «Characterization of small supernumerary marker chromosomes in individuals without phenotypic abnormalities».
D.A. Yurchenko: Darya Yurchenko, Marina Minzhenkova, Zhanna Markova, Anastasia Tarlycheva, Nadezda Shilova 3.P36 «Using FISH for characterization in detail of small supernumerary marker chromosomes in patients without phenotypic features»
Joint study with N.V. Shilova, M.E. Minzhenkova, Zh.G. Markova: Maria Gridina, Evgeniy Mozheiko, Emil Valeev, Ludmila Nazarenko, Maria Lopatkina, Zhanna Markova, Marina Minzhenkova, Nadezhda Shilova, Igor Lebedev, Veniamin Fishman 4.P5 «Precise detection of balanced chromosomal rearrangements and single nucleotide variations using chromosome conformation capture».
The presentations aroused great interest among foreign colleagues. Among all the reports, the poster report by Marina Evgenievna Minzhenkova, Candidate of Medical Science, describing five cases of constitutional neocentric supernumerary marker chromosomes won the prize, as reported by Constantin Miller, Secretary General of the Society of European Association of Cytogeneticists.
V. S. Fishman, Candidate of Biological Science (M. Gridina's paper "Precise detection of balanced chromosomal rearrangements and single nucleotide variations using chromosome conformation capture") made an oral presentation, presenting the results of joint work of the FSBI RCMG Cytogenetics Laboratory and their colleagues from Novosibirsk and Tomsk Genetics Institutes.
