Department of Plant Physiology and Biotechnology was established in 2009. Organization of the department started from “zero level” so, it took us two years to begin our research work.


The studies on optimization of the growth and development of plants from the family Asteraceae as well as Phaseolus coccineus and flax in in vitro conditions are being conducted in our Laboratory of plant cultures in vitro. The aim is to obtain sterile and healthy plants, as well as their cell and tissue cultures, which are the material for further study of plant secondary metabolites and examination of plant responses to various elicitors. In the Laboratory of Plant Physiology, research of the mechanism of plant response to stress factors is carried out.
