08/06/20, at the Department of Molecular Biology and Medical Genetics named after academician of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan T. Raisov, a summative exam was conducted in the 1st year of the specialty “Public Health” in the discipline “Genetics and Molecular Biology” using the Zoom platform. 13 students of the 1128 group of the specialty “Public Health” passed the exam.
