PhD project: Efficient stem-based propagation system of Energy crop (Arundo donax) and characterization of repetitive landscape of A. donax and its ancestral A. plinii genome

Objectives:

  • To improve early field establishment of Arundo donax focusing on stem-based propagation system comparing with different propagation methods and to increase multiplication potential of new stem cutting system
  • To describe the first characterization of transposable element of A.donax and its ancestral A. plinii in shaping their genome evolutionary relationship
