Solutions for modern agriculture and plant biotechnology.
The Metabolic Engineering Laboratory executes research projects that immediately, medium or long term lead to an efficient increase in the availability of biological products with potential uses in any of the spheres of modern life. In close relation with the mentioned projects, he performs basic studies of metabolism in plants (including secondary metabolism).
Isolation, purification and characterization of phytoproteases from different sources
Isolation and characterization of secondary metabolites of commercial interest. Use of in vitro culture techniques to overexpress their production
Study of the main enzymes related to the secondary metabolism of plants. Metabolic profile of transgenic plants.
Evaluation of the biological activity in vivo and in vitro of the natural products obtained from the different vegetable sources
