 RTD focus of organization
Fruit breeding and biotechnology

 Description of RTD activities
The research field is: optimalization of the medium using differing species and concentration of plant growth regulators; long-term storage in vitro cultures under cool conditions, encapsulation and further culture viability; the influence of retardants - prolonged effect ex vitro; adventive organogenesis from a leaf; androgenesis; genetic specificity of mineral nutrition in vitro; application of chemotherapy in vitro for obtaining virus-free cultivars, fruit reproductive biology, etc.

 Experiences in international Programmes
Laboratory for tissue culture in vitro at the Centre was developed owing to the help, i.e. training by prof. dr P. Rossati from the Instituto do Coltivazioni Arboree, Bologna (Italy). A long-term collaboration has also been established with dr Grazia Marino from the same Institute, as well as with prof. dr Bruno Mezzetti from Dipartimento di Scienzie Ambientali e delle Produzioni Vegetali Universita Politecnica delle Marche, Ankona (Italy). Prof. dr Bruno Mezzetti incited my inclusion into COST 836, the title of action being: Euroberry research: From genomics to sustainable production, quality and health. The MC delegate for Serbia in COST 863 and COST 871 Actions.
