The absolute key to human health, scientists can pick up in the near future. In proteins encoded all information about the body. In a large international study involved and Russian specialists.
Scanning probe Nanoscope size of only 1 atom. On the monitor shows the individual objects - proteins. At the Institute of biomedical chemistry work the most fundamental project of contemporary biology - decoding of the information stored proteins human, scientists call it proteomes. The full transcript of the proteome can give the absolute key to human health. This would require one drop of blood. It is applied on a special chip with the nanowires, which was developed and produced in Novosibirsk.
After this analysis we can say everything about the current human condition, the ills that are just beginning to develop and that can happen in the future. 10 years ago scientists thought that the DNA and genes - it is the key to health. But it turned out that proteins is much more important. Well-studied was only about a dozen proteins. The best known are insulin and hemoglobin. But in the body there are at least 20 thousand, and each affects the person's life. Describe them - an impossible task for a single institution and even the whole country. The proteome of a human - with a global project in the field of life Sciences. 20 research centres from around the world send information in a common data Bank.
To fully decipher the proteome person will turn out in 15-20 years. The end of basic research should produce a real revolution in the pharmaceutical industry and medicine.
