Assignments and research

Project „BIOKUE-Linie“: Development of breeding lines with higher yield and essential oil content for summer-annual and winter-annual growing of caraway (Carum carvi).

  • Development and selection of breeding lines for summer-annual and winter-annual growing of caraway
  • Development and evaluation of ‘synthetic populations’ to exploit heterosis
  • Evaluation and optimization of breeding methods
  • Establishment and application of molecular-genetic techniques in caraway breeding

Project „LEADER“: Resistance breeding of potato against Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Colorado potato beetle) and Epitrix spp. (potato flea beetle).

  • Analysis of phenotypic data from resistance tests
  • Genetic mapping/identification of resistance loci
  • Development of genetic markers for resistance loci
  • Analysis, comparison and selection of resistance mechanisms
