Laboratory “Regulators of Plant Growth and Development”



Associate Professor Desislava Todorova, PhD

Building 21, Office 103
Phone.: +359-2-9792676

Research area

Investigation of the role of the regulators of plant growth and development under normal and stress conditions. Search for opportunities to increase plant resistance to abiotic and biotic stressors through the application of new or known plant growth regulators. Development of in vitro models for preservation of the gene pool of rare and endangered species, for increasing plant productivity, for stimulating the biosynthesis of valuable secondary metabolites.
