The Plant Biotechnology Lab is mainly involved in Molecular Biology with the goal of improving plant need for phosphate fertilizer while improving crop performance using all in-vivo, in-vitro and in-silico methodologies. The model plant is Arabidopsis from which the selected acid phosphatase-encoding genes with desired features are selected for crop genetic engineering.

In addition, a series of genetically engineered sugar beet plants have been developed for resistant to rhizomania disease using plantibody and gene-silencing technologies. Risk assessments of the promising events are underway.
