The physiological mechanisms of cereal plant reaction to stresses of drought, low temperature low soil ph and low availability of mineral nutrients are studied.
 

Objectives:

  • physiological mechanisms of reaction of cereals to water and low temperature stress on different organization levels - whole plants, seedlings, tissues and cells,
  • genetic variability among wheat and triticale genotypes with respect to efficiency in mineral nutrients utilisation (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium),
  • genetic determination and localization of genes controlling plant reaction to aluminum stress in wheat, rye and triticale chromosomal location of molecular markers of aluminum tolerance in rye.

Objectives:

  • differentiation of rye and triticale plant materials for the purpose of hybrid breeding,
  • identification of molecular markers linked to pollen fertility restoration genes in rye for cms Pampa,
  • identification of molecular markers linked to Al tolerant genes in triticale,
  • studies on somaclonal variation in barley and triticale,
  • studies on genome methylation changes due to tissue culture processes in barley.
