Scientific Session of the RAS General Meeting


The results obtained by the research team of the All-Russia Research Institute of Selection and Seed Breeding for Vegetable Crops are presented. Specific examples demonstrate the efficacy of methods and technologies that create genetic resources for vegetable crops: the cytogenetic GISH and FISH methods, the doubled haploid technology in the culture of unpollinated ovules, and molecular marking used as a specific and varietal identifier of vegetable crops and for the study and identification of genes responsible for agronomic characters. The results of regular phytosanitary monitoring are considered separately: identifying the composition of pathogenic species not recorded previously in vegetable crops in individual regions and throughout the country in general and developing the scientific basis for the evaluation and selection of vegetable crops with a highly effective antioxidant system to design socially and economically important functional food products.
