The Saffron-OMICS workshop as a source of agri-food research data requirements


Saffronomics-Fa1101bSaffron-OMICSOmics Technologies for Crop Improvement, Traceability, Determination of Authenticity, Adulteration and Origin in Saffron is a COST Action  (FA1101) on Food & Agriculture (FA) that aims to:

  • Strengthen the network of collaborative research on the structural organization of Saffron genome, DNA fingerprinting, chemical fingerprinting, proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics of this crop and
  • define a common strategy to the final goal of preserving Crocus biodiversity, to carry out genetic improvement and to protect quality, sustainability, and safety of production of saffron in Europe.

Between May 14-15 2015, Saffron-OMICS organized a workshop titled “Advances in molecular and phytochemical fingerprinting for traceability and authenticity of saffron”, hosted by the Center for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) in Thessaloniki, Greece.… Click to read the full post
