Project objective: study the consequences of radioactive impact onto genetic system of mammals.
The research performed:
During 1999-2004, a series of experiments regarding exposure of animals under the conditions of the most contaminated sites within the Chornobyl Zone (‘Red Forest’) and in laboratory conditions were performed using a gamma-device.
Currently, the level of mutagenesis and genetic load transfer to next generations are being assessed.
