About the Department of Plant Physiology and Microbiology
The Department of Plant Physiology and Microbiology of Samarkand State University was established in 1929-1937 under the name of the Department of Plant Physiology as part of the Higher Pedagogical Institute (1927-1930), the Higher Pedagogical Academy (1930-1933), Uzbek State University. In 1944, when the UzDU was restored, it functioned as the Department of Plant Physiology and Microbiology. In 1977-1987, it was merged with the Department of Plant Systematics and became known as the Department of Plant Systematics and Physiology. In 1987-2005, he was again given the name of the Department of Plant Physiology and Microbiology. In 2006-2018, the Department of Botany and Plant Physiology merged with the Department of Botany and since September 2018 has been functioning under the name of Plant Physiology and Microbiology.
From 1929 to the present, research work in the field of plant physiology has been carried out at Samarkand State University. In the early years (1929-1341), the heads of the department prof. Tikhomirov, prof. A. Fashievsky and Associate Professor P. Marsakova focused on the training of highly educated physiologists. The first graduates of this department in 1936 were 8 people: N. Ataullaev, N. Gafarov, B. Abaeva, Raskevich, S. Danilova, Frolova, P. Deinenko, and U. Sultanov. They continued their scientific work in various institutes. Among them, Professor N. Ataullaev and Associate Professor B. Gafarov worked tirelessly in the field of scientific activity and education at the Samarkand Agricultural Institute until the end of their lives.
To date, the department has 2 doctors of science, a professor, 2 doctors of science and 4 candidates of science, associate professors, 2 candidates of science, associate professor and 2 teaching assistants.
The staff of the department cooperate and conduct scientific research with scientists from such universities as NUUz, GulSU, BukhSU, AnSU, FarSU, KarSU, TerSU of Navoi and Jizzakh universities and similar departments of other universities of the republic, the Institute of Botany at UzFA, the Institute of Genetics and Experimental Plant Biology, the Institute of Microbiology , Institute of Chemistry of Plant Substances. Academician S. Yunusov, Research Institute of Horticulture, Viticulture and Winemaking. Academician M.Mirzaev and Research Institute of Agrotechnologies of Selection, Sowing and Growing of Cotton, Samarkand Scientific Experimental Station, Research Institute of Vegetable Growing and Potato, Samarkand Experimental Station, Zarafshan National Natural Park.
Also, members of the department cooperate with scientists and specialists from the Agricultural University of Iceland, the All-Russian Research Institute of Fruit Crops Breeding of the Russian Federation, the Bashkir State University, the State University of Utah of the United States of America, the University of Szeged in Hungary), the Institute of Ecology and Botany of Hungary, the University of Nevada United States of America, the University of Bologna in Italy, the Universities of Berlin and Humboldt in Germany and other foreign universities.
Since 2018, the student scientific circle “Plant Physiology” has been operating at the department. Talented students of the department participate in various republican competitions. Among the graduates of the department, there are holders of presidential scholarships, outstanding figures and winners of national-scale Olympiads.
To date, the teachers of the department have created more than 60 textbooks, manuals, teaching aids and instructions. He also published more than 10 monographs, about 20 recommendations, about 10 copyright certificates and more than 1000 scientific articles.
Today, the department conducts scientific research on the topic "Physiological and biochemical properties of pasture plants grown and introduced in the conditions of the Samarkand region (2021-2025)".
In recent years, more than 1,000 highly educated physiologists have been trained. 70 candidates of sciences, 14 doctors of sciences - professors have been trained.
