In a study published yesterday in the journal Science, a group of 111 population geneticists and archaeologists, among them the Portuguese Pedro Soares from CBMA, charted 8,000 years of genetics in the region.
“Impacts of silver nanoparticles in freshwater detrital food-webs in a warming Scenario” was considered the best Portuguese thesis of 2017, presented in Portugal in the field of limnology.
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

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.
