The well-known sci­en­tist of Uzbek­istan, aca­demi­cian of the World Academy of Sciences Ibro­him Ab­du­rah­manov has pub­lished his new book «Phy­lo­ge­net­ics», in which he shared the re­sults of the lat­est re­searches con­ducted us­ing the most mod­ern sci­en­tific tech­nolo­gies.

Phy­lo­ge­net­ics is aimed at study­ing the evo­lu­tion­ary affin­ity of liv­ing or­gan­isms of our planet. Its ap­pli­ca­tion ex­tends to such key areas, as the evo­lu­tion, clas­si­fi­ca­tion and tax­on­omy of liv­ing or­gan­isms; ecol­ogy, diversity and bi­ol­ogy of con­ser­va­tion of agro­bio­coeno­sis; mon­i­tor­ing the spread of pathogens, out­breaks and sources of trans­mis­sions, foren­sic anal­y­sis. His­tor­i­cally, phy­lo­ge­netic stud­ies were pre­dom­i­nantly based on the mor­pho­log­i­cal fea­tures of species which helped to clas­sify the «Tree of life» on Earth. How­ever, mod­ern re­search in this di­rec­tion is largely based on the def­i­ni­tion of DNA se­quences.

In this book, read­ers are pre­sented the lat­est devel­op­ments in phy­lo­ge­net­ics, in which there were distin­guished sys­tems with sev­eral king­doms, retic­u­lated evo­lu­tion and the bi­ol­ogy of con­ser­va­tion of liv­ing or­gan­isms, as well as the achieve­ments of phy­lo­ge­net­ics based on «omix» tech­nolo­gies.

This new book pub­lished by Pro­fes­sor Ab­du­rah­manov sum­ma­rizes the up­dated knowl­edge on a very im­por­tant sub­ject of ge­net­ics, study­ing the con­nec­tion of liv­ing or­gan­isms on Earth.

He ded­i­cated this book to the First Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan Is­lam Karimov and his sci­en­tific su­per­vi­sor at the Texas Me­chan­i­cal and Agri­cul­tural Univer­sity, hon­orary pro­fes­sor Ka­mal El-Zek who played a sig­nif­i­cant role in his sci­en­tific ca­reer. Is­lam Karimov in the first days of in­de­pen­dence in 1991 is­sued a de­cree on the or­ga­ni­za­tion of the In­sti­tute of Ge­net­ics in the Academy of Sciences which served as a sci­en­tific plat­form for the tal­ented young gen­er­a­tion of the repub­lic.

Ibro­him Ab­du­rah­manov be­gan work­ing at the In­sti­tute of Ge­net­ics from stu­dent years. A vi­tal step in the sci­en­tific ac­tiv­ity of the fu­ture pro­fes­sor was the or­ga­ni­za­tion of the pres­i­den­tial fund “UMID”, thanks to which he had the op­por­tu­nity to study at the lead­ing agri­cul­tural school of the Texas Me­chan­i­cal and Agri­cul­tural Univer­sity in the di­rec­tion of ge­netic engi­neer­ing. This helped the young sci­en­tist to re­al­ize his po­ten­tial which later de­vel­oped in the cre­ation of the Cen­ter for Ge­nomics and Bioin­for­mat­ics in Uzbek­istan. Pro­fes­sor Ka­mal El-Zek sup­ported Ibro­him Ab­du­rah­manov in all stud­ies and firmly be­lieved in his abil­i­ties.

“This book is a re­flec­tion of my grat­i­tude to the great peo­ple who con­trib­ute to the up­bring­ing of the youth, in­clud­ing in sci­ence», the sci­en­tist said in an in­ter­view with our news agency.
