In the seminar, a senior researcher of the Bioadaptation Laboratory of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnologies, a doctoral student in the "Molecular Biology" specialty, PhD Samra Mirzayeva spoke on "Molecular-genetic mechanisms of tolerance of the tomato plant to biotic and abiotic stresses". The speaker gave information about the research she conducted at Ankara University as part of the postdoctoral program with a scholarship from the Islamic Development Bank.
Samra Mirzayeva was on a scientific mission to Ankara University of the Republic of Turkey as the winner of the Islamic Development Bank's "Postdoc" research competition, and for four months she conducted research on the molecular-genetic mechanisms of tomato plant tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses.
As objects of research, Money Maker, sensitive to the virus, and local varieties Yegane and Shalala were taken, and the complex responses of foreign and local tomato varieties to biotic and abiotic stresses were comparatively analyzed. After the detection of viruses in plant samples infected with Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus and Tomato Chlorosis Virus, which are viruses with DNA and RNA genomes, by duplex PCR and nested PCR methods, using the qReal-Time PCR method, the expression of genes in drought-stressed plants was examined, and cellulose-synthase-like genes related to the pathogen in tomato plants were comparatively analyzed. In the end, Samra Mirzayeva answered the questions about the topic.
