Conducting biotechnology studies
Producing virus free buds,
Dihaploid breeding of melon via anther culture,
Embryo rescue of Citruses,
Disease free production of banana and ornamental plants,
Mi gene analysis of tomato to determine root tumor nematod,
Characterization of populations,
Determining of inter/intra genetic relationships of genotypes,
Determining commercial varieties via DNA fingerprinting and genetic mapping,
Marker assisted selection,
Determining the mechanism of biotic and abiotic stresses resistance.
Plant Tissue Culture Center established at Aegean Agricultural Research Institute (AARI),
Stock material for potato, fruit trees and ornamental plants will be developed in that Center,
Lab and staff capacity developed in Niğde Potato Research Station (NPRS),
AARI and NPRS have capacity for 10% basic seed (mini tuber) production capacity of the Country.
Domestic potato varieties developed using biotechnology will be available in a few years
Determining crop diversity by molecular markers,
Genetic characterization of plant material (Land races, varieties, breeding material/lines),
Marker assisted selection especially for resistance to pests and diseases,
Anther culture for getting Doubled haploid plants to shorten breeding duration,
Analyzing and determining transgenic plants,
Developing pure lines and commercial varieties of field crops such as wheat, cicer, lentil, cotton, potatos and barley by using combination of biotechnology and conventional breeding.
