Variation in genomic landscape of clear cell renal cell carcinoma across Europe.
The results show that the processes underlyingccRCC tumorigenesis may vary in different populations and suggest that AA may be an important ccRCC carcinogen in Romania, a finding with major public health implications.
Genome-wide association study of renal cell carcinoma identifies two susceptibility loci on 2p21 and 11q13.3
A two-stage genome-wide association study of renal cell carcinoma in 3,772 affected individuals and 8,505 controls of European background and followed up 6 SNPs in 3 replication studies reports previously unidentified genomic regions associated with RCC risk that may lead to new etiological insights.

It is demonstrated that genes encoding ion channels KCND3, CACNA1FB, and ATP4A were differentially methylated between the marine and the freshwater populations, suggesting that an immediate epigenetic response to freshwater conditions can be maintained in freshwater population.

It is found that contemporary Yakutian horses do not descend from the native horses that populated the region until the mid-Holocene, but were most likely introduced following the migration of the Yakut people a few centuries ago, representing one of the fastest cases of adaptation to the extreme temperatures of the Arctic.

Investigation of microbial biodiversity and its physiological potential in formation waters of the Samotlor high-temperature oil reservoir (Western Siberia, Russia) revealed the presence of several groups of microorganisms that escaped cultivation, suggesting that their distribution may be much wider than suspected.
Geoalkalibacter ferrihydriticus gen. nov. sp. nov., the first alkaliphilic representative of the family Geobacteraceae, isolated from a soda lake

It is proposed that this strain be assigned to the new genus and species Geoalkalibacter ferrihydriticus, from Lake Khadyn (Tuva, Russia) sediment samples, and 16S rRNA analysis places strain Z-0531 into the family Geobacteraceae.

A new genus, Methylopila, and one new species are described for a group of seven strains of facultatively methylotrophic bacteria with the serine pathway of C1 assimilation, and it is shown that the new isolates represent a separate branch within the alpha-2 subclass of the Proteobacteria.
A Study of Nucleotide Sequences of nifH Genes of Some Methanotrophic Bacteria
The results obtained in this study are in good accordance with the data of phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA sequence comparison with the only exception being Methylococcus capsulatus strains, whose nifH genes proved to be closely related to n ifH genes of Methylocystis and Methylosinus representatives.

Gram-positive bacteria capable of nitrogen fixation were obtained in microoxic enrichments from soda soils in south-western Siberia, north-eastern Mongolia, and the Lybian desert (Egypt) and in anoxic enrichment with glucose from soda lake sediments in the Kulunda Steppe using nitrogen-free alkaline medium.
