Treatment of organic waste by biological systems: compost and vermicompost.
Study and production at pilot scale of biofertilizers and biopesticides through vermicomposting of grape marc and distilled grape marc of white and red grapes.
Physical, chemical and biological characterization of compost and vermicompost : fertilizing capacity, potential toxicity and persistence of pathogens for humans and crops.
Metagenomic and metatranscriptomic approaches to study the interactions and changes in the composition, structure and function of microbial communities in vermicompost, soil, rhizosphere and filosfera of the crops.
Application of fertilizers (vermicompost) in vines, flowers, horticulture and other crops: In solid and liquid phase and biopesticides in foliar sprays.

Physical, chemical and biological characterization of compost and vermicompost: fertilizer capacity, potential toxicity and persistence of pathogens for humans and crops.
Metagenomic and metatranscriptomic approaches to study the interactions and changes in the composition, structure and function of microbial communities in vermicompost, soil, rhizosphere and phyllosfere of the crops.
Application of fertilizers (vermicompost) in vines, flowers, horticulture and other crops: in solid and liquid phase and biopesticides in foliar sprays.
Physical, chemical and biological characterization of soils, organic waste and vegetable substrates.
Physical, chemical and biological characterization of compost and vermicompost.
Bioinformatic analysis for the study of metagenomes and/or microbiomes (DNA metabarcoding), in a field that can be called environmental genomics or genomics of communities. Our services range from the processing of the sequences to the statistical analysis of the data obtained.
