Searching for new highly efficient tools to increase of productivity of main agricultural crops is one of the priority tasks of applied modern biological science in Ukraine and worldwide. Therefore, the development of fundamental and applied bases to improving biotechnological methods of obtaining production is critical.

The revealed changes of metabolic, protein and phytohormonal profiles of soybean symbiotic system under stress conditions allow to identify key biomolecules involved to the adaptation process, both the plant and bacterial origin. The complex detailed analysis of metabolites, proteins and phytohormones exposed to stress factors will determine the physiological role of these molecules in the formation of plant resistance to drought.

The obtained results are the basis to the search for key macromolecules involved to the adaptation of plants to adverse environmental conditions, establishing their role in cellular processes and possible importance ​​for practical use to improve plant resistance to stress factors. The relevance of this topic testifies the interest of ukrainian and foreign scientists shown to this research on ukrainian and international conferences, congresses, symposiums, presenting the results of this work.

The results of this investigation was presented on ukrainian  and international conferences and symposia. The great interest of ukrainian and foreign scientists of this research demonstrates the relevance of it.
