Sandra K. Cichorz
Plant Breeding and Acclimatization Institute – National Research Institute | Poland
Sandra Cichorz is an adjunct at Plant Breeding and Acclimatization Institute – National Research Institute (PBAI-NRI), Poland, and the head of Laboratory of Cytogenetics and Breeding Methods. Her current research focused on molecular, cytological and immunohistochemical analysis during the induction of gametic embryogenesis in sugar beet breeding lines. She is particularly interested in investigating the role of arabinogalactan proteins and pectins during embryo formation, with the aim of gaining better understand of the complex mechanisms that control gynogenesis for potential improvement of its efficiency.
