Integrated Research of Physiological and Molecular-Biochemical Aspects of Plant Stress

Research focuses on the study of plant resistance mechanisms against abiotic environmental factors. The content is an analysis of the effects of selected contaminants (heavy metals) on the cellular, biochemical and molecular mechanisms of their action.
It also analyzes the impact of stress factors on the mechanisms of resistance of plants to them, as well as the study of physiological, anatomical morphological and molecular biological anomalies of plants.

A priority area of molecular biological analysis is the study of plant pathogenesis proteins (PR proteins) under the conditions of various stress factors. In the context of the study of interspecific fir and pine hybrids, the research focuses on the study of enzymes and biologically active substances in relation to the
systematic position and abiotic factors of hybrid swarms.

An integral part of the research is also the optimization and application of analytical methods to test the quality of the environment. The obtained results have the ambition to contribute to the use of plants in remediation programs.
