MAIN DIRECTIONS OF SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY
# The study of species diversity and bioecology of higher plants, micromycetes, lichens and the possibilities of maintaining their biodiversity;
# The study of genetic structure, mechanisms of biosynthesis and secretion of hydrolytic enzymes, factors of pathogenicity and virulence of phytopathogenic bacteria;
# The study of biological variety of the fauna of Belarus at the species and biocenosis level;
# The study of the development and state of plant photosynthesis organs in different conditions, regulation of ion transport systems of plasmalemma and accumulation of radionucleoides;
# The study of neuronal and biochemical mechanisms of homeostasis maintenance influenced by physical and chemical factors;
# The study of matter rotation and energy flow in water ecosystems as the basis of reservoir productivity, self-purification and formation of the quality of water;
# The study of molecular mechanisms of cell resistance to the damaging action of xenobiotics and physical factors of the environment;
# Research and study of pharmacologically active compounds, compositions and extracts of plant and animal origin, possessing antitumour, radioprotective, geneprotective, photoprotective and antimutagenic activity;
# Research of molecular genetic mechanisms of microbial synthesis of biologically active compounds suitable for biotechnological use.
