Our partner university - Rhine - Waal University
(Germany) invites university teachers to take part in the movement organized by the “scientists4future”. The action is called #LecturesForFuture, the idea behind this action is to raise the awareness of the changes induced by the global warming. During this action you are asked to replace the content of a curricular / existing course with the topic connected with man-made climate change and its consequences. The sharing of pictures or videos of the events by the students in the social media under the hashtag #LecturesForFuture is highly appreciated. You are free to choose any topic, the only important thing is that the entire lecture is held under the topic of global warming and it has the reference to the actual course (i.e Maths, Physics, History etc).

Joint forces of scientists from the Biophysics Department, Institute of Fundamental Biology and Biotechnology, Siberian Federal University and Biophysics Institute, CSC SB RAS led to the discovery of really sensitive rapid test. This test could be used to assess the chemical safety of fruit and vegetables. Bioluminescent enzymes are used as a recognition tool behind that test as they proved to show maximum sensitivity in recognition of potentially toxic substances (even with the smallest concentration) in complex environments. You read more about it in the latest issue of “Doklady Biochemistry and Biophysics”. Furthermore, you go to our website website
and find more details about that research (in Russian).

The joined team from Siberian Federal University and the Sukachev Institute of Forest discovered that Siberian Pine (Pinus sylvestris) is spreading further north and can soon suppress the Siberian Larch (Larix sibirica) from its natural habitat. This conclusion was made based on the studies of internal mechanisms of water evaporation in these two types of trees. "According to the measurements, the larches tend to evaporate more water from the soil into the crown, while pine has shown itself to be more economical, better controlling evaporation from the needles"

For one of our students these summer holidays weren't dreary. Tatiana Stepina had an unforgettable month in Kazan. As everybody knows from 24-th of July till 16-th of August Kazan hosted two magnificent international events: the 16-th FINA World Championships and 16-th FINA World Masters Championships. Athletes from 190 countries participated in six disciplines (water polo, synchronized swimming, open water swimming, swimming, diving and high-diving). Tatiana worked as a volunteer in FINA World Water Park, she and other 15 students from various universities and colleges spend 2 days travelling by train in order to reach Kazan. In the FINA Park they presented Krasnoyarsk city and had been telling others that our city is going to host Winter Universiade 2019. Tourists, athletes and local citizens were very excited after visiting the special tent "Universiade 2019". Volunteers had offered everyone to do a special triathlon consisting of laser shooting, aero hockey and table curling, after doing so they could make a selfie (or ask professional photographers to make a picture of them) in front of a special brand wall. Lucky visitors had a possibility a meet a mascot - U-laika and take a picture with him. Everyday volunteers from Krasnoyarsk organized special quizzez about history of Universiade, sport disciplines, famous athletes and sport competitions. Prizes varied from small souvenirs to real medals with U-laika. If by any reasons you missed the chance to explore Universiade 2019 - you can do so in Krasnoyarsk in Tatushev island where we have the similar tent. For whom Krasnoyarsk is a distant place to visit - they can join groups in Facebook or vkontakte (groups called the same way "Universiade 2019").
