Main research topics

Metagenomic analysis of methane-producing bioreactors.

Research activity is focused on analysis of the microbial community and its modification in response to variation of the substrates and foaming. The aim of the project is to improve renewable energy production (biogas) production from pig manure (READ MORE). In collaboration with Angelidaki I. of the DTU Environment (University of Copenhagen).

Genome sequencing and gene expression analysis of environmental Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains.

This research topic is focused on the dissection of relevant phenotypic (alcoholic fermentation rate, SO2 resistance) using genomic approaces like RNA-seq and genome sequencing (READ MORE). In collaboration with Corich V. and Giacomini A. of the DAFNAE Department (University of Padova).

FSE project - Development of new enological starters to improve the peculiar characters of the Venetian wines (READ MORE).

Analysis of bacteria and archea isolated from extreme environments (cold adaptation - READ MORE in collaboration with Cavicchioli R. of the UNSW University) (deep-sea adaptation - READ MORE in collaboration with Bartlett D. of the SCRIPPS Institution of oceanography).
