RUDN has summed up the results of a competition of scientific projects in the direction of "Modern Languages"

The first winner is the project “Linguistic Cultural Identity and Communication Style in Different Socio-Cultural Contexts”, the supervisor is Tatyana Larina (Russia) and the co-director is Daniel Kadar (Institute of Linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences).

The goal of the project is to identify and systematize the ethnocultural features of communication of representatives of different cultures in the form of dominant features and communication styles. In the conditions of modern migration turbulence, the search for a solution to the problems of intercultural interaction is important for the migration attractiveness of countries.

The second winner is the project “Functional Dynamics and Representations of Languages and Cultures of Internal and External Migration in an Urban Environment”, scientific advisor is Svetlana Moskvicheva (Russia), co-director is Alain Dominique Vio (France).

The research focuses on group characteristics of migration languages. The goal of the project is to identify and describe the most characteristic signs that determine the dynamics of the languages of migration of a city. The Armenian, Azerbaijani and Tatar communities of Moscow were selected as specific migrant communities. Based on the results of the research, it is planned to predict the future of these languages in the context of modern migration processes.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Mowing Is More Harmful to Soil Than Grazing

A team of biologists analyzed soil samples from a pasture and a regularly mowed meadow and found out that grazing lets more carbon get into the soil than mowing. This, in turn, improves the carbon cycle and makes microorganisms more efficient.

Soil scientists suggest method for remediating urban garden soils contaminated with lead and arsenic

The soils of urban gardens and vegetable patches contain a lot of toxicants (including lead and arsenic) in high concentrations which can be harmful to the health of children and people with chronic diseases. A team of soil scientists from RUDN University suggested a remediation method developed based on data collected in a garden of Brooklyn (NY, U.S.).
