Major research initiatives include:

  • Tissue culture propagation of endangered flora for ex situ conservation

  • Development of micropropagation methodologies for production of resilient plants of critically endangered species for reintroduction purposes

  • Application of cryogenic research for long-term storage of germplasm collections of endangered plants for ex situ conservation purposes.

  • Investigation of practical methods for enhancing resilience to environmental stress and improving survival of native plants used in restoration of disturbed landscapes.

  • Research into innovative biotechnology solutions for efficient mass propagation of native plants e.g. somatic embryogenesis and manufactured seeds.
