The Institute of Plant Physiology and Genetics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IPPG) is a leading scientific research organisation in the Ukrainian city of Kiev. Founded in 1946 as a branch of the Institute of Botany, the Institute specialises in crop breeding, plant physiology, genetics and cellular engineering.

Current status

On 2007, the Institute has 7 departments, 3 regional science centers with about 1,000 employees.

Main scientific fields

Scientific research of the Institute are executed after perspective directions, NAN of Ukraine ratified Presidium
*finding out of physical, chemical, molecular conformities that law the growth, development and firmness of the vegetable systems, creation on this basis of new technologies, and biotechnology;
*comprehensive study of processes of photosynthesis, mineral feed of plants, biological azotfiksacii, possibilities of the use biologically of active matters, ground of new intensive technologies of growing and storage of agricultural produce;
*study of mechanisms of genetic processes with the purpose of development of principles of management of living organisms the inherited changeability, development of genetic and physiology bases of selection of plants.

cientific schools

In an institute founded and the known scientific schools operate successfully:
*from molecular genetics (a founder is an academician of NAN of Ukraine of Gershenzon Serhij Mykhajlo);
*from experimental mutagenezu of plants (a founder is an academician of NAN of Ukraine of Morgun Volodymyr Vasyl);
*from physiology of growth and development of plants (a founder is the honoured worker of science of UKRAINE, d.b.n. F.L. Kalinin);
*from the physiology role of oligoelementss (a founder is an academician AN UKRAINE and Vasgnil p.A. Vlasyuk);
*from physiology and ecology of photosynthesis (a founder is a corresponding member AN Ursr a.S. Okanenko).

Achievement and developments

For a general revision and introduction sorts and hybrids of winter wheat, rye are offered, tritikale, corn of selection of institute, new high-efficiency competitive cultures of bul'bochkovikh bacteria.
