Laboratory of Molecular Genetics

Head: Oksana Y. Urbanovich

Doctor of Biological Sciences


Key directions of scientific research:

  • development of new methods and technologies aimed at deeper investigation of genetic processes and genes of importance for the agricultural crop breeding;
  • development of genetically modified (transgenic) plants with economically valuable traits;
  • marker-assisted selection, DNA-certification of agricultural crops.
