Laboratory of Ecological Genetics and Biotechnology

Head: Aleksandr V. Kilchevsky

D.Sc. in Biology, Professor, Academician


Key directions of scientific research:

  • Investigation of genetic bases for the productivity and quality of agricultural crop formation on the basis of molecular genetic, biochemical and biotechnological approaches;
  • Development of marker-assisted selection methods for the economic characters of agricultural plants (tomato, pepper, wheat, cabbage, lupine, corn, and flax);
  • Oncogenomics: a comprehensive analysis of the mutation and epigenetic variability of tumor diseases;
  • Study of genetic and biochemical processes associated with an increase in life expectancy;
  • Nutrigenomics;
  • Development of technology that allows determining the probable appearance of an unknown individual according to his or her DNA characteristics.
