Good to eat

Growing concern for health has fuelled interest in the relationship between diet and disease prevention.

The plants of the future

This monograph analyses the possibility of cultivating plants outside our planet Earth; presents advances in genome editing such as those that have allowed my laboratory to obtain seedless tomatoes; assesses strategies that should lead to more plentiful harvests using fewer resources; and explains biotechnological strategies to strengthen plants’ immune systems or to use them as biofactories in which we can harvest molecules of health or nutrition interest. Will that be enough? Will we make it in time?

Our red radishes

Enjoy red radishes: we look for some seeds among friends and make room for them in out garden so we can have them almost at any time of the year.
