News: The NEURICE H2020 project kicks off
The H2020 project NEURICE, with participation of CRAG-CSIC researcher Blanca San Segundo, has kicked off this March.
The main objective of the project is to develop strategies for rice productivity, stability and quality by developing New commercial EUropean RICE (Oryza sativa) harbouring salt tolerance alleles to protect the rice sector against climate change and apple snail (Pomacea insularum) invasion (NEURICE).
The project involves 12 partners from Spain, France, Italy, UK, Argentina, People's Republic of China. This Neurice will bring together experts in diverse fields such as plant breeding, plant molecular biology and biotechnology, plant physiology, electrophysiology and cell signaling, salinity monitoring systems, farming and agriculture development, fostering new opportunities for training and additional collaborative research.
