Institute of Genetics and Plant Experimental Biology

General Information

The Institute was established in 1992. Currently there are more than 450 employees working in 20 laboratories. The technical staff includes 4 Academicians, 17 Doctors of Science and 54 PhDs.

Institute’s Focus

Institute’s areas of core competencies include the following:

  • Development of genetic cotton collection on quantitative traits, study of inheritance and variability of economically valuable traits;
  • Development of the collection of cotton world diversity gene pool and its study with the help of cytoembryological, genetic, karyological and anatomic methods;
  • Development of genetic and cellular biotechnology for obtaining of transgenic plants, microorganisms and animals, genetic and engineering means of disease diagnosis;
  • Use of heterozic effect, experimental mutagenesis, traditional and biotechnological method of breeding and seed growing for the development of new cotton varieties;
  • Physiology and biochemistry of plant resistance to diseases and unfavorable environment factors, trials of native and foreign pesticides;
  • Agrobiological investigations for soil fertility rehabilitation;
  • Creation and development of phytopathogenic microorganism’s collection, screening for plant resistance to pathogens.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Cotton varieties, (released varieties are cultivated on a large scale);
  • Promotion of promising varieties in elite farms of different regions of Uzbekistan;
  • Recommendations on soil fertility increasing and distribution of crops and pesticides;
  • Genetic engineering services for the purposes of forensic and medical criminal law (determination of parental relationship, identification of person).

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer
