Research activity

During her master Science thesis, she studied Analogues of Resistance Genes in Apple. She has dealt with genetic characterization of different plant species (apple, grapes, strawberry, raspberry, currant ) and yeasts through the use of molecular markers (SSCP, CAPS, SSR, SNP, SnaPshot, RFLP, SCAR, RAPD, HRM). She also performed analysis of gene expression in plant species and quantifications with the aid of Real -Time techniques in plant substrates, environmental and animal samples.
She recently worked on clinical studies on intestinal microbiota connected to diet and autoimmune diseases, using Real Time techniques and Next Generation Sequencing.
She does internal management to the laboratory of issues related to security- disposal waste management, purchase orders, training of trainees/ undergraduates.
