1. Plant and Experimental Biology

Research Directions

  • Induction of genetic variability (tissue culture, mutagenesis experiments with gamma radiation and / or alkylating agents);

  • Biotechnology regeneration and micropropagation species of medicinal and aromatic plants;

  • The identification of new active principles of herbs and assessing their bioproductivity;

  • Analysis of new genotypes (chemotype / chemovarietate) selected after experimental genetic techniques;

  • Assessing human impact on ecosystems ecotoxicology;

  • Evaluation of non-biotic factors on biota in protected areas; 

  • Dynamics of biogeochemical circuits in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems;

  • Technologies for recovering and treating useful compounds from waste materials.

Activity Domains

  • Development of bioproducts formulas used in phytotherapy, cosmetics, food;

  • Qualitative and quantitative phytochemical analysis of active principles;

  • Morpho-phytochemical and genetic research;

  • Conventional cultures of medicinal and aromatic plants.

  • In vitro tissue culture;

  • Hydrochemical and geochemical dynamics and evaluation of biochemical circuits of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems;

  • Evaluation of the impact of biotic and non-biotic factors in natural and protected ecosystems (hydro- and geochemistry).
