The aim of the current research was to detect and assess the cytogenetic disorders of disaster fighters of Chernobyl nuclear power plant catastrophe, depending on radiation and non-radiation factors in the early and distant post-disaster periods with the help of system analysis methods. One can come across works dedicated to the study of genetic disorders of organisms exposed to a high level of radiation, but there are not enough data about the changes in these indices in case of low level radiation (lower than 1 Gy). This is the reason why it is of interest to find out the role of cytogenetic indices in the development of radiobiological effects in case of low dosage exposure. The results of regression, factorial dispersive multi regression and discriminant analyses methods of cytogenetic indices are presented in the study.
