Plant biology solutions and their application in agricultural production chains are been developed by Hernâni Gerós, researcher at CBMA.
Biotechnological materials that use nature as a source of inspiration are being developed by Raul Machado, Assistant Researcher at the CBMA. The aim of this technology is to avoid the use of antibiotics and other agents in the treatment of wounds that may be less biocompatible and, thus circumvent any problem to antimicrobial resistance
Ricardo Franco-Duarte researcher at CBMA talks about the research projet TODOMICS, a project that aims to enlighten the molecular and biochemical bases related to the production of higher quality wines by the yeast Torulaspora Delbrueckii.
A team from the University of Minho including CBMA found that eye movements may reveal cognitive changes in people with multiple sclerosis that may influence the choice of treatments and techniques for tracking the disease. The results were published in the American scientific journal “PeerJ”. More
Let’s help us to save the planet from plastics!
The Project Bio3Pas intends to use aquatic fungi to degrade plastics. Using fungi from the collection of the Centre of Molecular and Environmental Biology, with a high capacity to break chemical bonds similar to those found in plastics, we hope to achieve a way to help the planet to be free of plastics, minimizing their negative impacts on aquatic fauna, especially birds, turtles, and cetaceans.
A multidisciplinary research coordinated by Jorge Pacheco, a researcher at the Centre for Molecular and Environmental Biology (CBMA), was published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, comparing financial networks with 500 years of difference, following the cash flow (Structural and temporal patterns of the first global trading market).
Fernanda Cássio, head of CBMA (Center for Molecular and Environmental Biology) and EcoAgriFood coordinator, presented the project in an interview to the program “Mentes que Brilham” from Porto Canal.
The NewFood competition is a contest to select ideas for innovative projects in Traditional Food Products and to support their introduction to the market. The aim is to create Work Teams and develop Innovation Plans. The projects considered of higher quality will be awarded. Within the FoodValorization contest these were the six Project Ideas selected: […]
