Laboratory of Plant Cytogenomics

Head: Elena A. Sycheva

PhD in Biological Sciences


Key directions of scientific research:

  • cytogenomics of cereals for bread making, the investigation of structural and functional variability of genes at molecular and cellular levels in distant hybridization and polyploidy;
  • investigation of cell mechanisms for the microevolutionary differentiation of polyploid species of cereals (gramineous plants);
  • experimental transformation of the genetic structure of cereal crops (rye, wheat, triticale, secalotriticum) by chromosome engineering methods;
  • chromosomal and molecular marking of the new gene pool of tetraploid and hybrid (Cytoplasmic Male Sterility system) rye, recombinant tetraploid and hexaploid forms of triticale and secalotriticum; marker-assisted selection (MAS).
