Abstract: The Byurakan-IRAS Galaxy (BIG) sample (1513 galaxies) is based on optical identifications of IRAS PSC sources at DEC > +61 and b > 15 (FBS area). A redshift survey for brighter objects (B < 18) is being carried out with 3 telescopes: Byurakan Observatory 2.6m, Special Observatory (Russia) 6m, and Observatoire de Haute-Provence 1.93m. 200 objects have been observed, and redshifts in the range 0.009-0.173 have been measured. For this subsample, 15% of objects are AGNs, and 5% are LIGs and ULIGs. Interesting cases of AGN containing interacting pairs are being studied by means of the 2D spectroscopy.
