Author's Guidelines for Abstracts

Each registered participant can submit one abstract. The presenting author of a lecture or poster has to be fully registered (including payment) for the congress before the submitted abstract will be evaluated by the scientific committee.


All abstract text must be in English (all oral and poster presentations must also be in English)


Abstracts should be arranged as shown in example abstract bellow.  The body text including references should contain 1500 characters as maximum (including spaces). Submissions will be published in the abstract book.


Together with the submission of an abstract, authors should state their preference for an oral or poster presentation. Authors will be notified about the acceptance as either oral or poster presentation in August 2016.

Submitted abstracts may be edited or withdraw until the July 31, 2016.

Abstracts should be submitted using INPPO2016 web tool available here.

We investigated seed development of flax (Linum usitatissimum, L. variety Kyivskyi) grown in radio-contaminated and non-radioactive experimental fields located in Chernobyl area since 20071. Surprisingly, Chernobyl environment resulted into 12% increased oil content in mature seeds. In order to elucidate molecular bases for such increase, flax seeds of second generation were harvested at 2, 4, 6 weeks after flowering and maturity stage and analyzed using 2-D gel electrophoresis (pH 5-8 strips) followed by LC-MS/MS. Our results indicate significantly increased abundance of proteins associated with carbon assimilation and fatty acid metabolism in early stages of seed development what is in concordance with increased level of seed oil. Increased abundance of seed storage proteins confirms data obtained from previous analyses. The updated model for plant adaptation toward a radioactive contamination based on these and previous results was suggested.
