The Post-Graduation Program in Biotechnology Applied to Agriculture at Universidade Paranaense has two research lines. In addition to the development of master-degree dissertations or doctoral thesis, these lines also integrate advising activities for students in Scientific Initiation, Course Final Papers for undergraduate and Lato Sensu Post-Graduation courses, as well as the supervision of post-doctoral students.
Biotechnology Applied to Agriculture
Aims at the bioprospection and genetic, morphologic, chemical, and biochemical characterization and gene expression of plants of agricultural, agro-industrial, therapeutic, food and/or environmental interest, providing its genetic improvement or allowing its farming and production. It also aims at evaluating the biotic and abiotic stress in plants and design protocols for farming in-vitro plants, extraction, and standardization of secondary metabolites, and the bioprospection of plant composites with biological activity. In addition, it also studies the biosynthetic routes of the plant metabolism, and the production, separation, purification, and identification of bioactive composites. Evaluation of biological properties of bioactive composites through in-vitro, ex-situ and in-vivo essays, with the purpose of developing and applying in food, cosmetics, agricultural, veterinary and/or environmental products.
Aims at the bioprospection and genetic, morphological and chemical characterization of microorganisms of agricultural, agro-industrial, therapeutic, food and/or environmental interest, focusing on adding value to the biological material, residues and byproducts through the development of products and processes of agricultural biotechnology interest. It also aims at evaluating the biological properties of bioactive composites through in-vitro, ex-situ and in-vivo essays, with the purpose of developing and application in products of agro-industrial, food, cosmetics, agricultural, veterinary and/or environmental interest. It also has the purpose of preserving microorganisms, studying the plant-microorganism relationship (biological fixation of nitrogen, mycorrhizal fungi, growth promoters, symbionts, endophytes, pathogens), microbial ecology and the microbiological quality of the soil.
