Anhydrobiosis


Main intracellular changes in eukaryotic cells at
extreme conditions of the environment (dehydration)



Main intracellular protective reactions



Most important factors favoring the preservation of
cell viability at extreme conditions of the environment



Main approaches which can increase the viability of
live organisms in extreme conditions of the
environment





Immobilization


New method of immobilization of microorganisms on
the carriers which are not suitable for necessary species


Biopesticides



New approach for the significant increase of
physiological activity of microorganisms


the basis of
biopesticides


(cooperation project with laboratory of Prof. E.Kolomiets, Institute of
Microbiology, National Academy of sciences of Belarus)





Bioethanol


New approach for the obtaining of bioethanol
from hardwood by simultaneous production of:



furfural from pentoses


bioethanol from the remaining lignocellulose


other valuable products from remaining lignin



(
ongoing project in cooperation with laboratory of


Prof. N.Vedernikov, Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry
)
