Research interests

Plant pathogens, characterization of their genomes; study of plant pathogens spreading paths, their damage done to plants and possible control of plant diseases. Methods used: transmission electron microscopy; ELISA: double antibody sandwich enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (DAS-ELISA), TAS-ELISA; PCR methods: reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), nested PCR, multiplex RT-PCR, immunocapture RT-PCR; extraction and purification of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA); polyacrylamide and agarose gel electrophoresis; gene cloning, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP); analysis of obtained sequencing data (comparison of nucleotide and amino acid sequences) and primer design (LaserGene DNAStar program package); construction of phylogenetic trees (MegaX, ClustalX, TreeView computer programs); gene sequence analysis using NCBI GeneBank database (Blast; ClustalW; EMBOSS Transeq programs).
