Dr. Arkadiusz Kosmala leads a team studying the cytogenetics and molecular physiology of grasses at the Department of Environmental Stress Biology of the PAS Institute of Plant Genetics in Poznań. In 2013, the team was awarded the Prize of PAS Division II: Biological and Agricultural Sciences for its research into molecular mechanisms of abiotic stress tolerance in Lolium and Festuca grasses.

Cereal crops are widely regarded as the most valuable grasses. But there are also “ordinary” species that can be used as cultivars for future agricultural varieties, as well as models for molecular research into plant tolerance of low temperatures and drought. These include ryegrasses (Lolium) and fescues (Festuca)
