Agenzia Nazionale Per Le Nuove Tecnologie, L’Energia e lo Sviluppo Economico Sostenibile
Agenzia Nazionale Per Le Nuove Tecnologie, L’Energia e lo Sviluppo Economico Sostenibile (ENEA) is the 2nd largest research organization in Italy, active in the areas of physics, high performance computing, climatology, energy and life sciences. The Green Biotechnology Laboratory, headed by Prof. Giovanni Giuliano is active in the areas of plant genomics, metabolic engineering and breeding. It has state-of-the art facilities for high throughput sequencing, metabolic profiling and transgenic plant generation and growth.
Prof. Giuliano has 28 years of experience in plant biochemistry and molecular biology, particularly in the fields of plant genomics, carotenoid biosynthesis and metabolic engineering.
Dr Gianfranco Diretto has initially worked on the transient and stable transformation of several plant systems and, more recently on the systems biology of carotenoid-enriched potatoes and tomatoes by producing and integrating transcriptomic, metabolomic and phenomic data.
Within TRADITOM, the working group of Prof. Giuliano and Dr Diretto will contribute its expertise in the fields of plant genetics, engineering of isoprenoid pathways, systems biology, “omics” techniques, bioinformatics as well as Solanaceae diversity collections.
