SCIENCE SEMINAR: NOBEL PRIZE 2022 AND THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN ORIGIN: WHERE ARE WE FROM?


26-10-2022
On the evening of October 26, 2022, at Hall K, Hanoi National University of Education successfully held the seminar "Nobel Prize 2022 and the search for human origin: WHERE ARE WE FROM?" with the presentation of Prof. Dr. Nong Van Hai, former Director of the Institute of Genome Research, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology.

Attending the seminar were representatives of the Science and Technology Office, staff, lecturers, graduate students and more than 150 students from the Faculty of Biology, History, Physics, Information Technology and other units inside and outside the university.

The 2022 Nobel Prize in Biomedical Sciences was awarded to Swedish geneticist Prof. Svante Pääbo (Director of the Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany) for significant discoveries about human evolution through analysis of the DNA of extinct ancient humans.

The guest speaker of the seminar is Prof. Dr. Nong Van Hai, who has successfully decoded the entire Vietnamese mitochondrial genome and is the author of the first work on the Vietnamese genome to be published internationally.

During the seminar, Prof. Dr. Nong Van Hai shared views related to human origin through groundbreaking researches on methods and analytical techniques by scientist Svante Pääbo on the extinct ancient human genome (Neanderthals and Denisovans). Professor Pääbo's research has raised the bar for the science of Paleogenomics - the study of reconstructing and analyzing the genomes of extinct hominids which helps human have a new understanding of the history of human evolution today. Thus, his discovery opened up promising research directions applied in the field of Biomedicine as well as supporting many fields of research related to human.

In addition, Prof. Dr. Nong Van Hai introduced about the most recent publications of scientists in the world and Vietnam about the prehistoric human genome in Southeast Asia as well as in Vietnam. These studies have shown the migration routes, languages, places of residence, ... of prehistoric people in Southeast Asia. Since then, sequencing the human genome in the world shows that the ancient peoples had exchanges and interference with each other not only in terms of culture but also genome to create ethnic diversity in modern humans, especially in Southeast Asian countries.

Prof. Dr. Nong Van Hai shared at the seminar 

The seminar was lively discussed with exchanges about the meaning, reliability and value of genome research in finding human origin. Paleogenetics Biology studies to reconstruct and analyze the genomes of extinct human-like species make a crucial contribution to the study of human evolutionary history, demonstrating the interdisciplinary nature between biomedicine, anthropology, history, archeology and culturology.

Speaking at the seminar, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Duong Minh Lam - Head of Science and Technology Office emphasized, the content of the seminar suggests new interdisciplinary research directions for teachers and students of Hanoi National University of Education. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Lan Hung Son - Dean of Faculty of Biology hopes that the success of the seminar promises to have many interdisciplinary scientific lectures jointly organized to promote passion for scientific inquiry, research and non-stop creative spirit of the staff, lecturers and students of the University.
