Principal Investigators:
Pedrini, Nicolás - Calderón Fernández, G. M. - Girotti, Juan Roberto

Studies on the biochemistry and molecular biology of insects and pathogenic fungi are carried out at the Laboratory of Insect Biochemistry.
They are of interest to sanitary conditions and agriculture. Our goal is to get further knowledge in the biochemical processes of these organisms for developing new methodologies in the control of plagues.
