Basic information

This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:
The aim of this project is to analyze the genome and proteome of some important food sources (legumes,pseudocereals) as a safe food for human consumption. The application of Scot markers, "perfect" markers and markers based on microRNA molecules is an original and effective approach for genomic characterization of food resources in term of nutrition importance.Gene encoding lunasin and peptide lunasin that has got antioxidant activity will be detected. Proteomic analyses of polymorphism and composition of storage proteins will be extended in the project with 2-DE analyses, analyses of proteins and peptides using mass spectrometry MALDI-TOF-SM in order to detect antinutritional and allergenic proteins.
