Research profile

During her work at Agricultural University of Wrocław, Małgorzata’s scientific activities were concentrated on non-tissue specific patterns of gene expression in animals and genetic diagnostics of inherited disorders as well as on population genetics in domestic animals. Now she is concentrated on improving her skills in ecological genetics. Currently, she is the leader of the KBN grant concerning milk proteins genes expression in mammal lymphocytes and beside that, she is involved in MRI PAS projects on ecological genetics, including genetic diversity in European bison. Małgorzata is the author and co-author of 14 scientific papers, numerous conference reports and articles. She also wrote ‘a molecular biology practicals guidebook for Biology students’ and is the main author of ‘Genetics for Biologists’ at AU of Wrocław.
