Research group profile
MGP research group main scientific activities are focused on the cultivation of wheat and the genetic improvement, by plant breading, of different plant traits with impact on the functionality and nutritional quality of wheat. The group has identify the location of new genes and published genetic sequences mainly related to quality characteristics and resistance of crop plants to pests. MGP has recorded new wheat varieties and registered varieties of garlic. MGP also has field experience in winter cereals and laboratory chemical analysis, molecular analysis and quality testing.
