GENECROP is a competitive research unit of the Galician R + D + i System for Groups with growth potential financed by the Xunta de Galicia.
GENECROP was created in 2021 as an opportunity to channel the knowledge of various researchers from the Misión Biológica de Galicia-CSIC and external collaborators from other entities. The human team that makes up this group is made up of 13 members, mostly doctors, who have developed their activity in different links of the agri-food sector, and share the objective of improving plant production, the quality and safety of raw materials.
The general objective of GENECROP is the comprehensive study of agricultural production, including programs for genetic improvement, sustainability, technological processes for its transformation and use of the waste generated during it. All this, in order to improve the quality and, where appropriate, the safety of the food consumed, providing a greater degree of acceptance, thus allowing greater profitability to producers and the development of the agri-food industry. Next, the lines of work are mentioned, where some of the actions described are transversal to different lines, and that would be encompassed in two main axes:
