Project  LIFE+:  LIFE08 NAT/IT/000342 “Development of a quick monitoring index as a tool to assess environmental impacts of transgenic crops”; Coordinator: ARSIA-Regione Toscana

Role: Scientific Responsible

The main objective of the project is to develop a quick monitoring index (QMI) to rapidly assess the potential risk generated by a selected range of transgenic crops in well determined ecosystems or biotopes. The index will take into account: i) the level of risk posed by a range of transgenic crops potentially used in the study areas, and ii) the potential interactions of these GMPs with some relevant biological, physical and climatic parameters that will be collected and studied in some sites of the study areas (web site:    ).

RESEARCH INSTITUTE

 

Description

The IGV-UOS of Florence was formed in 2001 by the suppression of the Institute of Forest Tree Breeding (IMGPF). The IMGPF was established in 1982 with the aim to focus the research activity in the Forest Tree Genetics and Forest Tree Breeding fields. This Institute saw the light of day in Florence which can be considered the cradle of the scientific knowledge in these fields.

The main research activities are concerned on the following topics.

Analysis of the genetic structure and the variability within and between populations of forest tree species. The Institute can be now considered one of the leaders at National and International level as it has been one of the first to set up and use the new biotechnologies to develop a lot of different biochemical and DNA markers. The Institute has given a fundamental and sometimes original contribution to the increase of the knowledge in forest topics (i) defining the level and the distribution of the genetic resources; (ii) exploring the phylogenetic relationships between different species; (iii) studying mechanisms involved in the maintenance of the genetic variability and potential adaptability.

Research into genetic ecology and ecophysiology of forest trees is carried out for the purpose of better understanding the mechanisms involved in the physiological response to environmental stresses and the links between physiological response, genetic variability and ecological adaptation; Research into the biology of propagation of forest trees focusing on solving some fundamental problems relating to micropropagation, dormancy and germination; Management and care of some experimental plots which were created in order to preserve particularly valuable genotypes and to carry out provenance and progeny tests

The IGV-UOS of Florence has participated in numerous EU/international projects (i.e., UE BIO4-CT1996-0706, UE FAIRCT1995-0097, UE FAIR3-CT1996-1464, UE IC18-CT1997-0200, USDA 23-99-20-CA, UE QLK5-CT1999- 01159, UE EVK2-CT1999-00036, UE QLK3-CT2000-30227, UE QLK5-CT1999-01210, Evoltree-6th FP; UE Novel-tree, LIFE+: LIFE08 NAT/IT/000342). This has facilitated the establishment of many collaboration with prestigious International Universities and Research Institutes (more than 50 in total).

 

Infrastructure

The IGV laboratories are well equipped, and include growth chambers and greenhouses; ultracentrifuge; thermal cycles; capillary sequencer (Applied 310); robotic workstations; Real Time PCR machines (Chromo 4); horizontal and vertical agarose and acrylamide gel electrophoresis apparatus (for nucleic acids and proteins); gel scanner, metabolite quantification and identification system, and instruments for the computerised analysis of the data. The institute is associated with the Electron Microscopy Centre, located on the same site, and has access to its facilities (TEM, SEM, ESEM, cryo-technique, and bifocal fluorescent microscope). In addition the Institute is located in the “Area di Ricerca di Firenze” together with all the CNR Institutes of Florence. This permits to have access to the facilities of the other Institutes and to the common one as Congress Centre, Conference rooms, etc. equipped with all the modern facilities.
