It should be noted that the scientific topic was funded by the Science Committee as a result of a competition for scientific topics within the framework of contractual funding of scientific and technical activities.

We talked about the goals of the scientific program and the expected results with Hovik Panosyan, Associate Professor of the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Biotechnology, YSU Faculty of Biology, Candidate of Biological Sciences, Head of the above-mentioned scientific program.

 

The EPSs produced by extremophilic prokaryotes display a wide structural diversity and due to their physical, rheological and some other unique properties have found applications from pharmaceutical to food-processing, but can also be used in production of paints, detoxification and bioremediation processes. The purpose of the current project is to reveal EPS producers among thermophilic and halophilic bacteria and archaea isolated from Armenian geothermal springs, saline-alkaline soils and subterranean salt deposit. Moreover, chemical-physical and structural features of their produced EPSs will be performed. The whole genome sequences of active producers will be investigated to reveal EPS encoding genes. The successful outcome is promising to get novel undescribed and biotechnologically prospective active producers of EPS and genes involved in their synthesis.

 

Numerous extremophilic microbes produce exopolysaccharides (EPS) as a significant strategy to survive in extreme conditions. The EPSs produced by extremophilic prokaryotes display a wide structural diversity and due to their physical, rheological and some other unique properties have found applications from pharmaceutical to food-processing, but can also be used in production of paints, detoxification and bioremediation processes.

Using histological, cytological, immunohistochemical methods, histomorphological changes in the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract of patients with COVID-19-associated mycoses will be examined in order to detect immune inflammation.

The data obtained will make it possible to identify the cytological patterns of the development of inflammatory processes, to find out the presence of immunopathological processes in conditions of exposure to mycofactors in the mucous membrane of patients with COVID-19-associated mycoses of the upper respiratory tract.

The results of the study will serve as the basis for the development of preventive and therapeutic measures in the fight against COVID-19.

 

Mycoses are diseases the exciter of which are  pathogenic fungi.  Currently 100 species of pathogenic fungi  and 400 species of  conditionally pathogenic fungi are known. These fungi are common in soil, mold spores and particles are  always present in the air in cities, flats/houses, open areas. It is shown that the particles detached from the mycelium often contaminated surfaces and some of these fragments may remain viable and grow. The concentration of fragments of fungi in indoor air reaches the level 29 to 146 particles in mm.

In case of proper conditions the spores and particle of  pathogenic  fungi  are penetrated into human’s tissue and cause mycotic processes. Molds produce toxic substances like mycotoxinswhich cause a number of pathogenic phenomena development in organism.

Currently in many countries are  observed  cases of mycosеs morbidity growth. This is due to a number of  circumstances. First of all, it is the increase in diseases that are accompanied by immune deficiency. Mycosеs morbidity growth is also due to the uncontrolled use of antibiotics which stifle the growth of bacteria and cause dysbacteriosis. As a result a fungal infection is developed.  Upper respiratory mycoses are observed quite often as the  mucosa of these organs as well as the skin are the first bulwark against fungal infections and are the first place of deployment

 

It is obvious that the second Artsakh war was an important information occasion both in the world and in the Arabic-speaking environment, after which they started writing about that conflict much more than in the last decade.

This is shown by the observation of the geographical results of the search for Nagorno Karabakh on Google Trends.

 

It is obvious that the second Artsakh war was an important information occasion both in the world and in the Arabic-speaking environment, after which they started writing about that conflict much more than in the last decade.

This is shown by the review of the geographical results of the search for Nagorno Karabakh on Google Trends.

"The challenges and developments expected for the security of the Republic of Armenia and Artsakh, and especially for the Armenian communities in the Middle East, need to be studied and evaluated. Therefore, the aim of the research is to answer those questions through the content study of Arabic-language digital media,”says Hayk Kocharyan, Associate Professor, Head of the Chair of Arabic Studies at YSU Faculty of Oriental Studies.

 

 

"YSU Microwave Research Laboratory examines the relevant materials and their systems in order to improve the propagation properties and control capabilities of the waves. The complexity of the problem is that the materials used in these systems are not simple compounds, but composite, ”said Professor Arsen Babajanyan, a member of the scientific group and head of the Department of Applied Electrodynamics and Modeling.

 

According to him, it is planned to detect microwaves of small interaction, thin rods and ribbons, which are the element of metallic elements, to determine the possibilities of controlling the size of the fields formed in their vicinity and the reaction phase.

 

"It will allow controlling the connection between the metallic elements in a wide range of frequencies, determining the most favorable structures for effective beam absorption, focusing and propagation in the necessary direction," explained Arsen Babajanyan.

 

It is planned to carry out research in the microwave or ultra-high frequency field, where there is a wide range of possibilities for creating sub-wave structures.
