Discoveries and research were carried out here, which gave impetus to the development of new directions in science, a solid foundation was laid for a strong scientific center in the country.
Today, IMBB continues to conduct fundamental and applied research in the field of molecular and cellular biology, biotechnology, genetic engineering, immunology, ethno- and personalized genomics.
