The Department comprises 2 Research Teams: Regulation of Gene Expression and Cytogenetics and Molecular Physiology of Plants. Research concentrates on mechanisms of plant adaptation to changing environmental conditions during the vegetative and generative phase of growth. The main aim of the studies is to understand the molecular and physiological basis of plant adaptation mechanisms to low temperature and water scarcity. In parallel, genetic grounds of the efficiency in the uptake and utilization of water and minerals by such crops as wheat, barley, pea are analysed.
Integrated research at the level of physiological, biochemical, genetic and molecular level is conducted with its scope covering:
