The SSS international conference, which was held on April 16-20, was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the First Armenian Republic. Within five days, about 50 representatives of more than 50 educational institutions from more than a dozen countries made reports in 20 professional sections of the scientific session, which were held at 19 faculties and 3 institutes and centers of YSU.

“This conference differs from the previous one. We can say that we have stepped forward and improved our most important event. This year, the number of participants and the number of people involved in organizational work increased. YSU SSS annual conference is one of the important youth events in the. We organize a symposium, all participants of which make reports, which is not an easy task,” - said Mher Hakobyan, Chairman of YSU SSS.

Chairman of YSU SSS thanked all those who had contributed to the organizational work of the 5th International Conference. Foreign guests of the international conference also expressed their appreciation and gratitude.

At the end of the solemn closing ceremony, certificates were given to volunteers and translators involved in the organizational work of the conference. Authors of the best reports received certificates.

At the event, dedicated to the memory of the author about four dozen scientific works, monographs, a university textbook and manual, the candidate of historical sciences, assistant professor Edward Danielyan, his family members in the person of his wife and son, relatives and colleagues, colleagues and students were present.

Dean of the Faculty of History of YSU Edik Minasyan assured that Edward Danielyan devoted his entire life to the work of educating the younger generation: “Our friend left us about a year and a half ago. However, he is in our hearts. Edward Danielyan made a great contribution to the educational process, and scientific progress.”


The dean of the faculty, who was the reviewer of the new monograph, told about some facts of the biography of Edward Danielyan.

Mr. Minasyan noted that Edward Danielyan had a stable political position: “He stood at the origins of the Artsakh movement and was a member of the secret committee.”

The editor of the new monograph, Candidate of Historical Sciences, Associate Professor Hovik Grigoryan noted that Edward Danielyan was a great man. Then he added that the monograph was written on the basis of a Ph.D. thesis, successfully defended in 1996.

The reviewer of the monograph, candidate of historical sciences Artavazd Darbinyan noted in his speech that Edward Danielyan was also a great teacher.

It should be noted that the monograph is a comprehensive scientific analysis of some acts and data on the lives of Armenians from Western Armenia who have escaped and immigrated to Transcaucasia.

The book is intended for historians, students and all those involved in the studies of the problems of genocide.

The Scientific Laboratory, funded by the State Committee of Science of the Ministry of Education and Science of Germany and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, is one of the two Armenian-German joint laboratories operating in Armenia.

The Armenian-German Laboratory of Molecular Biotechnology was established in 2017 based on the agreement between the Armenian State Committee of Science and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The foundation of the laboratory was the basis for more than 15 years of cooperation between YSU and the Institute of Human Genetics of Geneva. About 100 scientific works were published; about 45 trips were organized for researchers and students.

The Scientific Laboratory conducts research in 4 main directions: genetically new markers, DNA injury in human genome, and molecular-cellogenic effects of chemical mutagenes, AREAL electron accelerator radiation molecular-cellular results, and evaluation of DNA repetitions in patients with infertility.

“We have been working with the Chair for a long time. This lab will allow us to further expand the areas of cooperation, including new scientific and educational programs. Collaboration is mutually beneficial and effective because young scientists and students are able to gain experience and share experiences through joint programs,” - says Laboratory Coordinator, Honorary Doctor of YSU and invited guest lecturer Thomas Lir.


By the way, Thomas Lir, the Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Cell Genetics at the Institute of Human Genetics of Jena, offers lectures for YSU's Bachelor and Master students every year, and also provides scientific the Chair's specialists with consulting.

A workshop on laboratory work was also held at the Chair, during which the main directions of cooperation, already registered scientific results, educational programs were discussed, including master’s programs.

“It is worth mentioning that other chairs are included in the program. In particular, Dr. Marina Arakelyan, head of the Chair of Zoology, will supervise the study of lizard chromosomes in summer. The use of biological statistical methods in specific genetic studies will be discussed. We have certain programs for two years, and we are sure that as a result of our cooperation, our students will be able to travel to Germany in future,” - says Professor Ruben Harutyunyan, Head of the Chair of Genetics and Cytology.

The opening ceremony of the laboratory was attended by YSU vice-rectors, Dean of the Faculty and professors, who highly appreciated the work of the Chair.

The German Deutsche Welle website touched upon the history of the problem.
