Research areas

La creciente demanda por alimentos constituye un desafío mayor para el mejoramiento vegetal. Aumentar la eficiencia de la producción, mejorar las características agronómicas de los cultivos y la generación de nuevas variedades, constituyen  oportunidades que deben ser abordados en forma integral.

En lo particular, el foco de mi investigación es el mejoramiento de las características agronómicas de Lupinus luteus, especificamente, la disminuciñon de factores antinutricionales que limitan los usos industriales del cultivo.  En el corto plazo, mi objetivo es la identificación de los genes o factores genéticos responsables de la variabilidad en el contenido de alcaloides.
