Goals

            In order to facilitate the implementation and monitoring of INCT activities, it was subdivided into 10 Specific Objectives. Each objective will be developed by a group of institutions with expertise in component activities. The innovation actives coming from each objective will be analyzed for their patent potential and applied directly to the development of biotechnological products or stored in a bank of biotechnological actives of the Institute. The transfer of technology generated and the dissemination of the results obtained will be carried out throughout the duration of the project.

1 - Prospecting of new genes and molecules involved in drought tolerance and pest resistance

In-plant prospection of genes / molecules for drought tolerance;

Prospecting of genes / molecules for resistance to insect-pests;

Prospecting of genes / molecules for resistance to phytonematode;


2 - Integration of in silico data related to molecules responsive to biotic and / or abiotic stresses and interspecies

Cross species;

Cross stress (abiotic X abiotic) Cross stress (abiotic X biotic);

Cross stress (abiotic X biotic);

Cross stress (biotic X biotic);


3 - Prospecting new regulatory sequences and epigenetic regulators for the expression of genes responsive to environmental stresses


4 - Validation of innovation actives in plant-model

Validation of innovation actives for drought tolerance;

Validation of innovation actives for nematode resistance;


5 - Analysis for intellectual property purposes and curation of innovation activess


6 - Proof of concept and development of biotechnological products:
