Abstract
Interloci equilibrium between pairs of gene markers in the samples of different health rate in the population of Buryats of Chitinskaya Province was tested. The following methods were used: calculation of interloci correlation coefficients, chi 2-testing of the hypothesis of interloci equilibrium and the modification of principal components analysis on the basis of the matrix of Pearson's coefficients of contingency. In the groups of "extreme" health rate the tendency to increase in interloci disequilibrium was discovered. The reason for this effect is the increase in some phenotype combination frequencies that can be considered as markers of non-specific individual resistance in the environmental condition of the populations studied.

Abstract
This thesis attempts to answer: 1) How has history and evolution shaped the relationship of Aleut and Eskimo populations? and 2) What is the relationship of Aleuts and Eskimos to other Native American populations? Questions are addressed using anthropometric measurements and classical genetic markers. Relethford- Blangero method was applied to athropometrics of the study populations. Results were compared to Nei’s genetic distance matrix of classical genetic markers. Multivariate analyses were used to determine relationships among Aleuts, Eskimos and other American Indians. This study shows a close phylogenetic relationship among Aleuts and Eskimos. Anthropometrics reveal a close relationship between Savoonga, Gambell and St. Paul due to shared European admixture. Despite shared population history, St. George did not cluster with the other Bering Sea natives in the PCA, NJT, or unscaled R-matrices; highlighting affects of genetic drift on St. George. A close relationship between Aleuts, Eskimos, Northwest, and Northeast Natives was evident.

Abstract
The analysis of variation among 203 nucleotide sequences of Co-1 gene (DNA-barcode) for 45 species, 31 genera and 7 families of the order Perciformes from the Far Eastern seas of Russia has been performed. As a result, 42 species (93.3%) can be unambiguously identified using molecular DNA-barcode at Co-1, whereas more variable markers are required for other species (6.7%): Stichaeus grigorjewi, S. nozawae, and Lumpenus sagitta. The latter includes as well 2 morphologically distinct (by number of vertebrae) but genetically unresolved species, L. sagitta (Sea of Okhotsk) and L. fabricii (Bering Sea). In addition, within this genus morphologically poorly characterized but genetically well-distinguished cryptic species has been detected. Amphi-Pacific distribution is in question relative to L. sagitta. Cryptic diversity was observed in the genus Ammodytes.

Abstract
Measures of population differentiation, such as FST, are traditionally derived from the partition of diversity within and between populations. However, the emergence of population clusters from multilocus analysis is a function of genetic structure (departures from panmixia) rather than of diversity. If the populations are close to panmixia, slight differences between the mean pairwise distance within and between populations (low FST) can manifest as strong separation between the populations, thus population clusters are often evident even when the vast majority of diversity is partitioned within populations rather than between them. For any given FST value, clusters can be tighter (more panmictic) or looser (more stratified), and in this respect higher FST does not always imply stronger differentiation. In this study we propose a measure for the partition of structure, denoted EST, which is more consistent with results from clustering schemes. Crucially, our measure is based on a statistic of the data that is a good measure of internal structure, mimicking the information extracted by unsupervised clustering or dimensionality reduction schemes. To assess the utility of our metric, we ranked various human (HGDP) population pairs based on FST and EST and found substantial differences in ranking order. EST ranking seems more consistent with population clustering and classification and possibly with geographic distance between populations. Thus, EST may at times outperform FST in identifying evolutionary significant differentiation.
