Genomics of crop adaptation (GCA)

Department of plant breeding
Our general objective is the development and use of genomic tools for agriculture (translational plant genomics). We currently participate in structural genomics projects, and apply the generated results to the molecular characterization and selection of genetic resources, the traceability of food products, and the analysis of crop adaptation mechanisms. To this aim, we collaborate with the University of Cordoba in joint projects.
