Laboratory of Ecological Genetics and Biotechnology

Head: Aleksandr Kilchevsky

D.Sc. in Biology, Professor, Academician


Key directions of scientific research:

  • Investigation of genetic bases for building productivity, resistance and quality of agricultural crops on the basis of molecular genetic, biochemical and biotechnological approaches;
  • Development of marker-assisted selection methods for the economically valuable traits of agricultural plants (tomato, pepper, wheat, cabbage and lupine);
  • Human genomics (oncogenomics, longevity and human microbiome genomics, nutrigenomics, genetic approaches in pediatrics etc.).
