Emilia Ivanovna Kolomiets (b. 10.02.1949, v. Zapolich, Svisloch district, Grodno region), a scientist in the field of microbiology, biotechnology. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2003). Doctor of Biological Sciences (1999).

Research in the field of developing the fundamentals of biotechnology for obtaining new highly efficient microbiological plant protection products against diseases and pests, biogenesis of biologically active compounds with antimicrobial and entomopathogenic effects, microbial conversion of plant raw materials to feed protein. Under her leadership, a collection of fungal and bacterial cultures has been created that are promising for biological control of plant diseases and pests, their physiological and biochemical properties have been comprehensively studied, the mechanisms of biotic relationships with pathogens have been studied, key factors controlling the formation of biologically active compounds with antimicrobial and entomocidal action have been elucidated, Technologies have been developed for producing a number of environmentally friendly biopesticides He is directly involved in shaping the strategy for the development of the microbiological industry in the country and the introduction of the developed technologies in production.

Author of more than 240 scientific publications, incl. monographs, 6 patents, 3 copyright certificates.
