Optimalizácia podmienok pre in vitro množenie a kultiváciu netradičných odrôd ovocných lián Actinidia arguta a Schisandra chinensis (ukrajinský výber)
The optimization of the conditions for in vitro reproduction and cultivation of non-traditional fruit lianes Actinidia arguta and Schisandra chinensis cultivars (Ukrainian selection)
Program: Bilaterálne – iné
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: RNDr. Libiaková Gabriela CSc.
Annotation: This project will initiate cooperation between Institutions in the area of plant micropropagation and will promote level of research. The realization of the project will enable to successfully propagate and cultivate the valuable species for human health (Actinidia arguta and Schizandra chinensis), which will have commercial effect and social and ecological value.
Duration: 6.4.2017 – 6.4.2019

Mikropropagácia a kryoprezervácia menej známych druhov drobného ovocia
Micropropagation and cryopreservation of less known small fruit species
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: RNDr. Gajdošová Alena CSc.
Annotation: Berry fruits are characterized by high nutritional value and are considered as nutraceutical food. In spite of the increasing demand for berry fruits on the market their cultivation is not spread in Slovakia because of the lack of planting material of wider cultivar assortment and its high price. Rapid and profitable clonal propagation of planting material is possible to reach using tissue cultures. The project will be focused i) on elaboration of systems for micropropagation of some introduced less known small fruit species (Vaccinium, Rubus, Lonicera, Amelanchier spp.) utilizable in large-scale propagation of planting material; ii) on development of protocol for long-term storage of small fruit genetic resources by cryopreservation; iii) on testing of genetic fidelity of in vitro derived and after cryopreservation regenerated plants using molecular markers, what enables to evaluate suitability of elaborated protocols for their application for routine propagation and long-term storage of genetic resources.
Duration: 1.1.2017 – 31.12.2020
