ICCI has experience in all areas of cannabis research and husbandry, from deciphering the complexities of the metabolome (complete biochemical composition) of the plant, regulation of biosynthesis, genetic strategies in plant breeding, tissue culture and vegetative propagation ("cloning"), greenhouse and field culture, etc.
With commercial agriculture for cannabis comes the need to research for better production efficiency and safety. ICCI is involved in research activities in the field of plant integrity studies related to life functions, growth and development, including the study of plant communities at the level of basic and applied research. A wide range of methods ranges from molecular-genetic, microscopic, biochemical, biophysical, morphometric to plant community monitoring in the field. The areas of study are primarily aimed at understanding the biological nature of the plant as a functional whole (from DNA to phenotype) to the evaluation of plant interaction with the environment or other living organisms in the ecosystem.
