Centre of Plant Structural & Functional Genomics

Our research unveils the organization of genetic information of plants and explains how it controls plant growth and development. Our teams collaborate with colleagues across the world. We have participated in the ambitious projects that delivered genome sequences of important crops including barley and wheat.

Pranav Sahu, a scientist from the Olomouc workplace of the Institute of Experimental Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences was awarded in India for his research into plants and their reactions to climate change. His work was awarded the second place at a symposium of the European Molecular Biology Organization, taking place on 15-17 April 2019 in Delhi.

Annotation: Blumeria graminis causing disease powdery mildew is serious pest of wheat casing significant loses in yield and quality. Introgression of new resistance genes from wild related species is attractive way for wheat genome improvement. However, the introgression is often accompanied with deleterious gene introduction and loss of recombination hampering cloning of such genes. If you are interest in way how to clone such introgressed powdery . . .

Annotation: Homoeologous chromosome pairing provides an opportunity to introgress chromosome segment from one species to another. On the other hand, it may cause destabilization of hybrid genome via formation of multivalents and univlents, and consequntly, the loss of chromosomes and/or uneven segregation. We developed hybrids of Mediterranean and Continental morphotypes of tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) with aim to introgress summer dormancy . . .

The Application Laboratory for Agricultural Research
The Application Laboratory for Agricultural Research is the first laboratory at the Czech Academy of Sciences to link scientists with breeders and farmers. It was established under the Food for Future Program of the Strategy AV21 in February 2017 and is located at the Centre of Plant Structural and Functional Genomics of the Institute of Experimental Botany in Olomouc. The main objective of the Laboratory is to facilitate the . . .
The Foods for the Future research program of Strategy . . .
The Strategy of the Czech Academy of Sciences responds to current social challenges through a sophisticated formulation of research programmes, based on cooperation of scientific fields and institutions. The research programmes of the CAS are open to partners from universities, corporations, and institutions of regional administration, as well as foreign research groups and organisations. The research programmes are proposed and formulated in discussion . . .
