Laboratorio di ricerca

Lab. nameFruit Crops and Viticulture 
Principal Investigator Cristina Bignami 
ComponentsCristina Bignami  (Principal Investigator )
DescriptionResearch activity deals with the exploration of local crops and the study of fruit quality . Specific research themes of the group are: - identification of fruit tree cultivars and landraces through phenotyping and genotyping; - evaluation and exploitation of the local germplasm of grapevine and minor fruit tree species; study of the relationship among environmental factors, plant management and genotype; - analysis and characterization of genes involved in domestication of grapevine and fruit tree species; - analysis and characterization of genes linked to production and quality. Aim of the research activity is the deep knowledge of local genetic resources for the improvement of fruit quality and the sustainable use in fruit growing systems and multi-functional arboriculture.
