RESEARCH LINES

 

a.- Environmental Biotechnology: The main objectives are to evaluate tools and biotechnological processes to be applied in the remediation of polluted environment. To develop and obtain nanotechnological products with antimicrobial properties, for the environmental protection. To evaluate from microbiological point of view, the impact of biotechnological applications on the environment.


b.- Chemical ecology and natural products: The main objectives are to study inter and intraspecific relations to the identification and develop of semiochemical to be used in agroforestry crops and aquiculture. Search of secondary metabolites from fungi and plants with different biological activities to develop of products with biocide activity and pharmacology.


c.- Valorization of wastes: The main objective is to study different technological alternatives to the valorization of wastes from agroindustry with applications in agroforestry and energy, for the purpose of promote an sustainable agriculture.
