Laboratory of Ecological Genetics and Biotechnology

Head: Aleksandr V. Kilchevsky

Doctor of Biological Sciences, professor, a corresponding member


Key directions of scientific research:

  • investigation of genetic bases for productivity of agricultural crop formation and their quality on the basis of molecular genetic, biochemical and biotechnological approaches;
  • development of principles and methods for ecological plant breeding;
  • study of molecular genetic aspects of heterosis and distant hybridization of gramineous plants;
  • development and introduction of DNA-technologies for the breeding of major agricultural crops (tomato, pepper, potato, wheat, cabbage, flax, lupine, and corn);
  • Oncogenomics: a comprehensive analysis of the mutation and epigenetic variability of tumor diseases;
  • scientific and organizational work on the long-term high-quality storage and effective use of DNA sample collections and biological material: the Republican DNA Bank of a Human, Animals, Plants and Microorganisms.
