Curriculum

Principali ambiti di ricerca:
Studio delle prime fasi di sviluppo del frutto attraverso l'identificazione dei meccanismi molecolari che regolano  la transizione fiore-frutto.
L'interazione simbiotica tra piante leguminose e batteri azotofissatori: le risposte precoci della pianta all'infezione da rizobio.
Gli effetti di biostimolanti a base di idrolizzati proteici sullo sviluppo dell'apparato radicale.

Main research fields
Study of the first phases of fruit development, identification of molecular mechanisms regulating flower-fruit transition.
Symbiotic interaction between legume and N-fixing bacteria; host early responses to rhizobial infection.
The effects of  protein hydrolysates on root growth and development.
The research expertises include plant genetic engineering, design and preparation of constructs for plant gene silencing and overexpression, gene expression analysis, molecular characterization of GM plants, RNAi application to gene function discovery.
