Search of membrane transporters, participating in transfer of radionuclides in plants

Period: 2010-2011
Customer: Institute of the radiological protection and nuclear safety (IRSN), France

Objective of this project is by the example of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) to determine molecular nature of the radionuclides transfer in plants, to conduct estimation of coefficients of radionuclides transfer.
Activities will include: selection of soil samples in the Chornobyl zone, physical-chemical and radiological analysis of samples of soil, hothouses building, Arabidopsis growing.
