BACKGROUND The filamentous fungus Trichoderma harzianum is used as biological control agent of several plant-pathogenic fungi. In order to study the genome of this fungus, a functional genomics project called "TrichoEST" was developed to give insights into genes involved in biological control activities using an approach based on the generation of expressed(More)
The functional genomics project "TrichoEST" was developed focused on different taxonomic groups of Trichoderma with biocontrol potential. Four cDNA libraries were constructed, using similar growth conditions, from four different Trichoderma strains: Trichoderma longibrachiatum T52, Trichoderma asperellum T53, Trichoderma virens T59, and Trichoderma sp. T78.(More)
Trichoderma mycoparasitic activity depends on the secretion of complex mixtures of hydrolytic enzymes able to degrade the host cell wall. We have analysed the extracellular proteome secreted by T. harzianum CECT 2413 in the presence of different fungal cell walls. Significant differences were detected in 2DE maps, depending on the use of specific cell walls(More)
Trichoderma species are commonly used as biocontrol agents of different plant-pathogenic fungi. Terpene compounds are involved in the biocontrol process due to their antifungal properties (e.g., ergokonins and viridins) but additionally their structural function in the cell membranes (ergosterol) is essential. We report here the characterization of the T.(More)
The 'Campo de Gibraltar' region is a very industrialized area where very few air pollution studies have been carried out. Up to date, no model has been developed in order to predict air pollutant levels in the different towns spread in the region. Carbon monoxide (CO), Sulphur dioxide (SO(2)) and suspended particulate matter (SPM) series have been(More)
In this work automatic methods for determining the number of gaussians per state in a set of Hidden Markov Models are studied. Four different mix-up criteria are proposed to decide how to increase the size of the states. These criteria, derived from Maximum Likelihood scores, are focused to increase the discrimination between states obtaining different(More)
This chapter describes how a pipeline for the analysis of expressed sequence tag (EST) data can be -implemented, based on our previous experience generating ESTs from Trichoderma spp. We focus on key steps in the workflow, such as the processing of raw data from the sequencers, the clustering of ESTs, and the functional annotation of the sequences using(More)
The thiourea derivatives of N-butylmethylamine (3-benzoyl-1-butyl-1-methyl-thiourea) (1), N-ethylisopropylamine (3-benzoyl-1-ethyl-1-isopropyl-thiourea) (2) and the corresponding complexes of 1 and 2 with Ni(II), Co(III) and Pt(II) have been synthesized. The compounds obtained were characterized by elemental analysis, spectroscopic methods (FT-IR, UV-Vis(More)
