DEPARTMENT OF PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY
A plant genetic program, in agronomy, is a source of increasing productivity and improving quality, which practically cannot be exhausted. Nowadays, there is a real revolution in this area. Breeding today is not only crossbreeding and testing, it is almost an exact science, which operates of knowledge on the level from the gene to the gene pool.
Create a modern adapted hybrid that exceeds the current by yield — a task which today decided not only by the breeders, but genetics specialists, molecular biologists and biotechnologists. Such specialists work in the department of biotechnology, they solve the problem of rapid creation of varieties, reducing the amount of field work and increasing efficiency. This is due to prolonged growth of immature germ aseptically, by creating special lines and using special markers at the level of genes.
However, this is not the only task of the department. The priority tasks of our company is to provide farmers by hybrids that meet the highest standards of modernity, and this is possible only if the super modern approaches is used. The department is actively working on the implementation of genome editing system (CRISPR/Cas9). Systems that only the last few years have appeared at the disposal of mankind, and allows change the sequence of nucleotides directly in the plant, so-called directed mutagenesis.
Active work is underway on the creation biotech plants of sunflower, maize and rape, which have new features not peculiar to specified types or which have an insufficient level of manifestation in these important types.
OUR WORK, WE PROVE THAT THE COMBINATION OF TRADITION AND MODERN SCIENCE IS THE KEY TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN HARMONY WITH NATURE.
