Project leader: Dr. Hanna Bolibok-Bragoszewska
Research area: plant structural genomics and genetic diversity
Project title: Influence of selection on a crop plant genome - identification and characterization of sequences targeted by domestication and breeding in rye (Secale cereale L.).

This is a five year research project founded by Polish National Science Center. Depending on the stage on the project you can participate in (among others):

  • high-throughput plant DNA isolation
  • BAC DNA isolation and BAC library screening
  • genotyping of diverse rye accessions using SSR markers
  • development of mapping population: growing plants, vernalization, crossing
  • preparation of samples for genotyping–by–sequencing analyses or amplicon sequencing using next generation sequencing methods.
  • biostatistical analyses of genotyping data: construction of genetic linkage map and analyses of genetic diversity patterns.
  • analyses of sequence diversity of selected genes/gene fragments in diverse rye accessions

Recent publications:

Possible participation types:

  • execution of research project for Master Thesis
  • internship (within Erasmus or Ceepus programmes), at least two months long


  • interest in research work
  • basic knowledge of genetics and molecular biology
