Lines of research

First blog post

• Production of high quality early-ripening peach and nectarine by using “embryo rescue”.

• Development of a genotype-independent procedure to transform into Prunus and  into other woody species.

• Evaluation of constructions that allow the elimination of marker genes and the production of marker-free transgenic plants.

• Evaluation of alternative selection strategies to avoid using antibiotic resistant genes.

• Transformation of commercial apricot trees with pathogen-derived genes to induce resistance to sharka virus by gene silencing.

• Transformation of commercial apricot trees with genes involved in the systemic resistance to produce plants resistant to fungus and bacteria.

• Transformation of Walnut (Juglans hindsii x J. regia, cv. Vlach) to induce resistance to crown gall.

• Physiological and biochemical bases of Prunus-plum pox virus interaction. Function of anti-oxidative metabolism.

• Using environment-friendly treatments to increase tolerance to environmental stress in plants.

• Studies of proteins expression by means of proteomic techniques.
