The research areas include:
- study of the molecular variability of Mediterranean endemic and wild species or agricultural interest in order to assess the genetic structure and interspecific relationships. For this purpose molecular marker included nuclear and plastidial with reference to DNA barcoding.
- identification of biodeteriogen organisms on different materials (wood, paper, parchment, etc.) of interest for cultural heritage with application of molecular techniques; application of products based on nanoparticles for cleaning; study of biological aerosol in indoor and outdoor environment.
