[Article in Romanian]

Seeds of Triticum aestivum having an uniform genophond have been exposed to a microwave flow, with a frequency of 9.75 GHz and a low intensity. The effects of microwaves at various doses on mitotic activity have been followed.

Our results show that as compared to the controls different types of chromosomal aberrations appeared: delayed chromosomes, micronuclei, interchromosomal bridges, chromosomal fragments.
