The team performs quantitative genetics and genomics research, mostly on wheat and barley. Obtained in various ways populations of homozygous lines are investigated in field and glasshouse experiments. The aim of the study is to search for relations between variability at the phenotypic and molecular level. Agricultural traits linked with yield quality and quantity as well as resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses are examined.

Research profile

  • Genetic maps and QTLs localisation.
  • Pleiotropic effects of semi-dwarf genes in barley.
  • Genetic determination of seed technological quality in wheat.
  • Adaptability of cereals  to different  environmental conditions.
  • Biotechnological methods for obtaining homozygous lines from heterozygous hybrids.


  • in vitro cultures,
  • molecular analyses,
  • field and glasshouse experiments,
  • biometrical and statistical methods.

Current research activities

  • Genetic maps and  localisation of QTLs determining barley resistance to water scarcity.
  • Phenotypic effects of the denso/sdw1 locus in spring barley (Hordeum vulgareL.).
  • Genetic and molecular bases of grain quality in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.).
  • Wheat plants reactions to photoperiod and their adaptability to different environment conditions.
  • Development of rapid biotechnological methods for obtaining homozygous DH and SSD lines  in cereals and grain legumes.
