Research Centre ABT IPGB SAS in Nitra

The ABT unit at IPGB consists of two laboratories:

  • Laboratory of reproduction and developmental biology
  • Laboratory of plant molecular breeding

The research activities of scientific staff of both laboratories are focused on application of different biotechnological methods to obtain new genotypes and fast production of valuable species of crop plants and forest trees with the aim to contribute to food safety policy in our country. The research activities in the field of genomics and proteomics, by exploiting biotechnological approaches, will allow us to study the adaptation mechanisms to both biotic and abiotic stresses of environment. It is the key element required for breeding and agricultural production.
