BACKGROUND Hop (Humulus lupulus L.) is an economically important plant forming organogenic nodules which can be used for genetic transformation and micropropagation. We are interested in the mechanisms underlying reprogramming of cells through stress and hormone treatments. RESULTS An integrated molecular and metabolomic approach was used to investigate(More)
Grapevine species (Vitis sp.) are prone to several diseases, fungi being the major pathogens compromising its cultivation and economic profit around the world. Knowledge of the complexity of mechanisms responsible for resistance to fungus infection of cultivars, such as Regent, is necessary for strategies to be defined which will improve resistance in(More)

The environment was based on the university local LAN infrastructure and in the fact that almost all the students have their own laptop computer In order to innovate the conventional exam, it was implemented a challenge to groups of three(More)
The wet mechanochemical process (MC) and chemical precipitation (CP) used to prepare hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) nanoparticles proved to be successful. In mechanochemical treatment, water and ethanol were used as a solvent but the last one improved particles agglomeration and decreased HA formation. This effect was also observed when(More)
