The author of the following study guides
- Dyakov Yu. T., Elansky S. N. General Phytopathology: study guide for the academic bachelor course (Series: Bachelor. Academic course. Module.). Urait Moscow, 2018. - 230 p.
The content of this study guide includes a presentation of the most important and common problems of modern Phytopathology: a description of the causes and causative agents of plant diseases, the basics of immunity to them; the basics of epidemiology; principles and methods of plant protection, including selection and variety placement, chemical and biological protection, integrated disease and pest control. A separate chapter contains a description of methods for diagnosing pathogens of fungal, bacterial and viral diseases, including modern methods of genomic and proteomic technologies.

This catalog contains descriptions of potato varieties included in the State register of breeding achievements admitted for use as in 2013. During the preparation of catalog used available literature on varietal resources of potatoes, the materials of the site www.kartofel.org data of state testing of varieties and the results of studies conducted at the research Institute of potato economy and research Institute of Phytopathology were used. The catalog is designed for specialists of agricultural enterprises, researchers in the field of breeding and seed production of potatoes, farmers, owners of private farms, gardeners and truck farmers.
- Genotypic analysis and comparison of resistance to fungicides of Russian and Western strains of late blight, silver scab, fusarium wilt, rhizoctonia bright, alternaria and anthracnose (black spot) of potato and tomato were conducted for the first time. the Molecular resistance mechanisms of the pathogen silver scab of potato to the fungicide tiabendazole were studied. Highly aggressive and resistant to pencycuron strains of rhizoctonia were discovered for the first time.
- A technique of determining the species composition of pathogenic fungi and bacteria in the affected organs of plants without isolation of pure cultures was worked out.
- A collection of cloned in E. coli of fragments of the DNA sequences used for species identification of pathogens of potato and tomato was created.
- A collection of isolates of phytopathogenic fungi, fungus -like organisms and bacteria isolated from affected organs of plants was created. The collection made it possible to develop test systems based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to identify pathogenic species of alternaria, anthracnose, late blight, silver scab of potato and tomato, as well as late blight of tree crops. Strains of plant pathogenic organisms are also used in development and production of test systems of enzyme-linked immunosorbent and immunochromatographic assays.
- Species and intra-species genetic diversity of phytopathogenic microorganisms;
- Stability of phytopathogenic fungi to fungicides;
- Prevalence of strains carrying mutations of resistance;
- Rapid diagnosis of fungicide-resistant strains;
- Interactions of plants and phytopathogenic microorganism.
