Now the University scientists carry out the molecular biological research, DNA decoding, create a test system for the diagnosis of hormonal growth promoters in these laboratories.
IRINA ARONOVA, MEMBER OF MAZHILIS, LOWER HOUSE OF KAZAKH PARLIAMENT:
There are scientific developments that are in demand, especially in organic food production and engineering. Kazakhstan has concluded several agreements with international companies that operate in machine building industry. This is good. Initially, the idea of equipping University laboratories was aimed at connecting manufacturing with science so that Kazakhstan could compete with other countries.
