Key directions of scientific research:

  • Development of new methods and technologies aimed at the deeper investigation of genetic processes and genes, including those of interest for agricultural crop breeding;
  • Development of genetically modified (transgenic) and genetically edited plants with economically valuable traits using the CRISPR/Cas system;
  • Marker-assisted selection;
  • DNA identification and certification of agricultural crops.
