Description - Our journal also got a general name “Studia Biologica” that goes against a dominating fashion to give the scientific journal a very specific name, and thus, restrict a subject of published articles by the problems of a very narrow scientific field. Such restriction is especially wide spread among the journals in the field of biology. As a result, we got to a point that many biologists stopped understanding one another, since each branch of biology has created its own terminological apparatus. For example, articles published in specialized molecular biology or immunology journals can be read and understood only by scientists who are working in the corresponding scientific field. This does not only restrict contacts between scientists working in these fields, but also causes exhausting of the arsenal of scientific ideas that are necessary to begin a new interesting investigation. That is why, an excessive attention to the analytical studies, without a proper addressing the synthetic studies, without any doubt, harms science development. It should be noted that a new branch of the biological science – the synthetic biology – has been introduced by a well known molecular biologist Waclaw Szybalski, and this branch is currently rapidly developing. The term “synthetic biology” is widely used by many investigators, and specialized scientific journals which use that term have appeared. It has been also applied as a title of numerous scientific meetings. Of course, specialists who are working in a narrow field, have more opportunities to focus at a very concrete scientific problem and get faster interesting results in their studies. These results can be interesting enough, but not fundamental, since the statistics distinctly demonstrates that the most outstanding scientific achievements have been received on the cross-road of two or more sciences, for example, biology and physics, biology and chemistry, biology, physics and chemistry, etc.
