Anna Nadolska-Orczyk is a Full Professor of PBAI – NRI, head of Department of Functional Genomics. She has her expertise in development of RNAi technology to functional genomics and biotechnology of cereals: i) functional analysis of CKX genes involved in cytokinin-dependent regulation of barley and wheat development and productivity, ii) characterization of Pina and Pinb wheat genes determining grain texture; development of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology to analyze gene function and to generate plants with improved characteristics of agricultural traits.
Abstract : Cooperation of TaCKX genes in regulation of growth and productivity of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
