Crop Protection

  • AbioProtect: Protection against Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV). AbioPep in collaboration with CEBAS-CSIC is developing a product for cross protection against PepMV. This product belongs to the biological control organisms’ class
  • Development of products and strategies for crop protection against plant viruses by providing efficient, specific and environmentally-friendly solutions for the control of viral diseases

Viral Probes. We develop non-radioactive viral probes for plant virus diagnosis by molecular hybridization.

  • Currently we have a wide range of probes for diagnosing the main plant viruses affecting tomato and several cucurbits.

Plant virus disease diagnosis

  • High-throughput disease diagnoses by Luminex® instrumentation for Multiplexing solutions.
  • Disease diagnosis by massive sequencing of small RNAs from plants with symptoms to characterize diseases of unknown etiology.

Identification of sources of resistance for viral diseases

  • Susceptibility tests of commercial varieties.
  • Germplasm screenings to identify resistance sources for plants viruses.

PROJECTS

A COmbination of systems Biology and experimental high-throughput approaches to engineer durable Resistance against plAnt viruses in crops.

Plant viruses cause an estimated 50 billion € loss worldwide per year. Viral diseases represent one of the most limiting factors in European crop production having negative effects on the quantity and quality of foodstuffs. The recent identification of plant factors required for the virus infection cycle, together with the development of functional genomic tools in several economically important crops, offer novel opportunities to protect crop plants against viral diseases.
