Short research description:
We aim to characterize plant metabolic pathways involved in fruit organoleptic and nutritional quality and how they are regulated during ripening and fruit postharvest life. In particular our work is mainly focused on the metabolism of carotenoids in citrus fruits and how is regulated by enviromental and genetic factors as well as by different postharvest conditions.
