Embrapa invests in the conservation of native strains of microorganisms, which can be used by the scientific community in several research programs, ranging from diagnosis, treatment of diseases and production of vaccines for human and animal application to reducing the environmental impact of Productive processes and the generation of renewable energy. In this perspective, microbial cultures are being continuously studied for the formation of a database of "active" components and their respecti ...

Herbariums are scientific collections that keep samples of dried plants (exsicatas) from different ecosystems. The information contained in these places are basic sources for taxonomic, floristic, biogeographical, phenological and ecological studies, as well as providing data for the work on biodiversity, medicinal, toxic, fodder, food, among many others. In a simplified way, herbariums can be compared to archives, in which it is possible to collect diverse information about plants, such as habi

The project QUALIMICRO - Implementation and Monitoring of Quality Systems in Embrapa's Microbial Collections aims to implement the corporate quality requirements in 21 collections of microorganisms from 18 research units of the Company located in several Brazilian states. The Project will guarantee the quality in the management of these collections and make them able to meet the requirements of the national and international market.

QUALIMICRO lasts four years (until 2020) and continues ...

The detection of metal ions in plant tissues is an analytical problem of biological relevance with an impact on plant production. These ions are present in the tissues of plants, and insufficient or excessive values can lead to toxicity and change in their physiology. One of the analytical strategies for the determination of metallic ions in tissues is the use of electrochemical biosensors, which allow quick, selective and sensitive responses. This project aims at the construction of a biosensor

This project aims at the preventive development of genetic stocks resistant to quarantine organisms (pests and diseases that do not yet exist in Brazil) of high risk for Brazilian agriculture in order to reduce the economic, social and environmental impact of their eventual entry into the country. A program of preventive genetic improvement depends on partnership with research institutions from other countries so that quarantine organisms can be studied safely. This project is based on an establ

The characterization and exploitation of the various genetic resources maintained by the Ethiopian Institute for Biodiversity Conservation are necessary to adapt to climate change and increase crop productivity. In order to gain an in-depth understanding of the variability in the region, experiments were carried out at farmers' sites located in three Tigray areas, which tested the performance of 64 durum wheat varieties (VCTD). This project aims to evaluate and select these creole varieties for
