In experiments like MPD, that study behaviour of particles, it is important to correctly identify registered particles. One problem is the identification of particles that generate signal in detector. Second is the reconstruction of baryons, that have life span too short to reach detectors. All of this is important in studying strong interactions between different baryon types.

The presentation will start with physics motivation for the study. Next, the process of identifying baryons using MpdRoot software will be explain. The results for proton identification and lambda reconstruction will be presented. In the end will be shown first attempts at creating correlation function for proton-lambda.
