Laboratory of Plant System Genomics and Mobilomics

The purpose of the laboratory is to develop and apply the technology for activating mobile elements to accelerate the production of new economically valuable phenotypic traits and the creation of promising varieties and hybrids of agricultural plants.

About Laboratory
