Chernyk Yaroslava Ivanivna was born on August 26, 1954 in the city of Lviv. In 1976 she perfectly graduated from the Biochemistry Department of Lviv University. From 1976 till 1985 she was working on different positions (as a senior laboratory assistant, an engineer, a research worker) at the Radiation and Physics-Chemical Biology Laboratory of the University. She was responsible for managerial and state budget issues. In 1985 she defended her thesis entitled ôAlcohol-, malate-, lactate dehydrogenases, ?-amylase, alanine- and aspartate aminotransferases during the aging of Drosophila melanogaster" at Kiev University named after T.Shevchenko (supervised by Prof. H.D.Berdishev and prof. O.M.Belokon'). During the period from 1986 till 1990 she was working as an assistant of Genetics Department of Lviv University named after I. Franko, and since 1990 . ľ she is a docent of this Department. She gained her science degree of docent in 1992. She conducts general courses in "Genetics", "Biology of Individual Development" for the students of Biology Department, and also special courses in "Biochemical Genetics", "Genetic Analysis", "Genetic of Higher Eukaryotes", "Regulation of Genes' Activity", conducts laboratory practicums in Biochemical Genetics and Gene Analysis of Drosophila for students of Genetics and Biotechnology Department. In 1990 she had an internship in the Institute of Molecular Genetics (Moscow), in 1994 ľ in the Institute of Hereditary Pathology (Lviv), in 1999, 2007 and 2012 ľ in the Institute of Biology of Cell (Lviv); in 2005 ľ Washington University (USA, Seattle). She was a head of Subject Commission in Biology in the Lviv National University named after I.Franko (1997-1999). She is a co-author of three issues of tests in biology for the applicants to the higher education institutions. She was a scientific advisor of the following projects: "Research of regularities and mechanisms of destabilization of genome in laboratory lines and natural populations D.melanogaster from Chernobyl' area" (Ministry of Education of Ukraine), "Changeability of genome in the process of aging and under the influence of emergency factor" (Ministry of Education of Ukraine); and co-director of international projects ľ INTAS-Ukraine (96-1459) "Degeneration and regeneration of brain: molecular-genetic analysis of Drosophila", CRDF (UKB1-2646-LV-05) ôDrosophila as a model system of muscular dystrophy: a molecular genetic analysis of Dystroglikan-Dystrophin complexö. Since 2000 she is a co-director of theme "Creating of the system of genotoxicological researches for estimation of mutagenic background of environment" (Program of monitoring of Ukraine's Environment). Under her supervision six candidate dissertations were successfully defended (2000, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015) and two more is ready for defense. She has more than 160 scientific publications. Areas of scientific interests ľ genetics of ontogeny, mechanisms of genome destabilization, neurogenetics, genetics of miopathies.
