10th All-Russian scientific conference and school «Recent achievements and challenges in farm animals biotechnology — BioTechZh-2015» ( was held on December 8-11, 2015 at the L.K. Ernst All-Russian Research Institute of Animal Husbandry (Moscow Province, Russia) with the support of the Federal Agency of Scientific Organizations of the Russian Federation, Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) and the Ministry of Innovations and Investments of the Moscow region. A series of these scientific conferences dates back to 2001, when on the basis of the All-Russian Research Institute of Animal Husbandry (VIZh) a scientific event on farm animal biotechnology as a new research area in biology of that time has been initiated due to Professor Lev K. Ernst, the Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences. In 2015, the anniversary conference brought together experts and young scientists (207 young scientists, graduate students and students of a total of 281 participants) to discuss promising and rapidly developing areas in biotechnology of farm animals. The conference was attended by scientists from 16 Russian regions as well as scientists from Austria, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan.

Keywords: farm animals, game animals, gene pool, molecular and genetic research, molecular genetic studies, genetic profiling, genetic engineering.
