School of GENETICS (Private Laboratory of Cotton Genetics)

DJORA AZIMBOEVICH MUSAEV - Founder of the School of Genetics Famous geneticist, Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan (1984), Honored Scientist of Uzbekistan (1980), Doctor of Biological Sciences (1973), Professor (1975).

The main scientific work of D.A.Musaev is focused on these problems, creating a genetic collection for the inheritance of traits and characteristics of cotton. After the establishment of the Laboratory of Private Genetics of Cotton, the department has created about 500 homozygous lines of cotton, which are accepted worldwide and are the first in the type of G. hirsutum L. cotton. The main directions of scientific research on the fundamental and practical problems of cotton genetics on the basis of this scientific school are as follows:  Academician of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan prof. Under the leadership of Musaev D.A., as a result of identification of individual genes on chromosomes, in addition to the genetic collection of cotton, a collection of monosomal and translocation lines of plants belonging to the genus G. hirsutum was created. This collection is second only to the collection created in the United States.

The dissertation of 40 candidates of sciences and 5 doctors of sciences was defended at the school "Genetics". Academician D.A.Musaev is the author of 170 articles, 2 authors and 2 co-authored textbooks, a number of textbooks and scientific-methodical manuals, bachelor's and master's degree in genetics. Since the establishment of the school, in addition to the creation of a genetic collection, several new varieties (Navbahor, Armugan, Baghdad, Farovon) have been created.

As a result of the above work, the great geneticist D.A.Musaev was awarded the Order "For High Services" in 1991, the Medal "Honor of the Nation" in 1998, the Order "For Great Services" in 2003 and the State Prize "1st degree" in 2012. awarded.
