Overview:


Our first focus  is to enhance the knowledge of the pathogen's virulence and specificity mechanisms and the defence responses of the fruits against pathogens and non-pathogens as an important step to guide the search for new control treatments alternative to the fungicides currently in use. We  use genomics approaches to unravel pathogencity mechanisms. We are also involved in developing new methods to control postharvest diseases, from biological control agents to new chemical compounds that target pathogen's virulence factors.
