My expertise / skills : The “Mushroom Technological Research Center of La Rioja (CTICH)” is a researching center founded in 2003 and based in Spain.
Main researching activities are divided in the following areas:
o Mushroom production: this area is focused on crop management and cultivation methods. It has direct impact on mushroom growers and compost producers.
 Mushroom crops (Agaricus and Pleurotus). Casing soils (new mixes and materials), increase yields, new analytics methods and procedures.
 Pathogens bio-control (flies, mites, nematodes, filamentous fungi, bacteria).
 Specialty mushrooms: new crops, substrate and compost production, cultivation methods.
 Waste management of spent mushroom substrate. Circular economy.
 Mycelium conservation techniques.

o Biotechnology and Health: mushrooms have been traditionally used because of its medicinal properties in Asian countries. These properties have been investigated by research center in order to give consumers all the info and new products.
 Healthy mushroom properties.
 Bioactive research for new medicinal, healthy and cosmetic properties.
 Mushroom extracts production.
 Microbiome studies of compost, casing and mushrooms.
 Genetic studies.
I am working on :
Biotechnology (excluding environmental , medical , agricultural and food)
Crop Production
Crop Science
Food Biotechnology
Population Genetics
Technologies for biomass production
Keywords : mushrooms, champignon, fungi, biotechnology, microbiota, fungal pathogens, biocontrol, genetics, molecular markers.
Project description : We are looking for a research project in which we can collaborate, since we have experience both as European project collaborators and coordinators. Our research focuses on the study of cultivated fungi, however, in recent years our field of study has expanded with molecular techniques (ultrasequencing), wildlife conservation, extraction of bioactive compounds, search for biocontrol agents in pests and agricultural diseases and other studies related to fungal biotechnology.
Networking opportunities : We will be at the XVIII Congress of European Mycologists which is going to be held September, 16th-21st 2019 in Warsaw and Białowieża, Poland.
Also at the XI National Congress of Applied Entomology in Madrid (Spain) November 4 and 8, 2019.
