What the lab researches

Molecular Biology

We want to find out: where is the genetic potential for new varieties? 

Eliminating disease-causing factors in plants and food

Our research team is investigating the genetic basis for the breeding of new varieties and the development or prevention of plant diseases.
Using molecular biological, biochemical and bioinformatic methods, our experts determine the pathogenic factors. And based on these results, they develop innovative strategies to combat diseases.

Molecular markers for the selection of promising seedlings.

New technologies are also used in the breeding of apple and grape varieties. Molecular markers are used to select seedlings with genetic predispositions that come closest to the breeding goals.
Another useful feature is that we issue varietal authenticity certificates for apple and grape varieties and rootstocks in our laboratory.
