I’m working as Technician on olive (Olea europaea) genetics and molecular biology.

The Olive group of CNR-IBBR in Perugia works, at international level, on different topics related to Olea europaea genetics, genomics and molecular biology, including genome and transcriptome sequencing, functional genomics, germplasm conservation and evaluation.

Research interests:
- Development and analysis of chloroplast, mitochondrial and nuclear molecular markers;
- Genotyping of varieties, wild species, related subspecies of olive trees through molecular markers, genomic and metagenomic sequences;
- Use of different bio-informatic softwares (identity-similarity, evolution, population analyses, pedigree);
- Association mapping QTL and genome wide association studies GWAS;
- Nucleic acid extraction from different matrices (food, fatty matrices etc.);
- Molecular traceability of olive oils and detection of varietal composition;
- Breeding of olive cultivars and control by Marker Assisted Selection (MAS);
- Technical expert for olive cultivation: planting, pruning, harvesting and oil production;

- Expert on organoleptic detection of extravirgin olive oil.
