Research and academic Institute of Modern Languages, Intercultural Communication and Migration
The research and academic Institute of Modern Languages, Intercultural Communication and Migration deals with issues of language identity and ethno-cultural dynamics in the context of globalization. The key activities of the Institute are:
● development of innovative models for teaching foreign languages, including Russian as a Foreign Language;
● training of professional translators, including simultaneous interpreters for international organizations;
● study of global migration processes and their social, cultural and communicative contexts;

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
