The main milestones of the way of life and the main scientific achievements and achievements in the genetics, selection and scientific-organizational work of Khotylʹova Lubov Vladimirovna are presented. She is an outstanding Belarusian scientist in the field of plant genetics and biotechnology, academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Doctor of Biological Sciences, professor, Honored Scientist of the BSSR, Laureate of the State Prize of the Byelorussian SSR, author of more than 850 scientific works (among them 30 monographs, 23 author's certificates and 9 patents), the author of many varieties of vegetable crops, and a co-author of the high-yield triticale Nemiga-2, author of methods for assessing combining ability on the basis of dialectical analysis and the creation of a modification of the method of reciprocal recurrent selection of interlinear hybrids of maize on the basis of cross-grade crossings, which allows to increase productivity hybrid forms, is the author of works on the reorganization of the nuclear genome of cereals using biotechnology. The author has developed the problems of heterosis, studying the genetic basis of the formation of productivity and quality characteristics of agricultural plants using modern molecular genetics and biochemical approaches, genetic analysis of the action of genes for heterosis, intraspecific, interspecies and remote hybridization.
