Novel lines of transgenic plants with altered metabolism of phytohormones are prepared with focus on cereals. Fine-tuning of endogenous cytokinin levels on ectopic level and altering the ratio of cytokinin/auxin for instance leads to significant increase of root biomass or the number and size of grains on a single plant. In collaboration with the commercial subjects, we test for alternative way of antimicrobial peptides production in barley endosperm and approaches for increasing production of secondary metabolites in pathogenic fungi. In the frame of basic research, we study mainly metabolism and perception of plant hormones, new metabolic pathways and novel enzymes. We are also trying to elucidate the mechanism how some biotrophic fungal pathogen invade the plant host.
