BIOTECHNOLOGICAL
CONTROL OF PESTS

“Cutting edge technologies to
provide solutions for Pest Management”


Research at the CBP group aims to increase sustainability of current technologies for pest control and the development of novel methods lowering the impact of pest control on human health and the environment.

Understanding of the mechanisms
by which B. thuringiensis
toxins work, and by which insects
can develop resistance
to them.
 

Discovery, engineering and development of novel bacterial and viral agents to be used as bioinsecticides for the control insect pests.
 
 

Understanding the mechanism underlying the interaction of Lepidoptera with bacterial
and viral pathogens to develop
novel strategies in
pest control.
 

Investigating the molecular determinants for resistance evolution and selectivity of pesticides to promote the implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies.
 
 

I’m glad to share our contribution to the identification of a novel gene family (parasitoid killing factor: pkf) playing an essential role in regulating insects-parasitoids-viruses multitrophic interactions

Last week we had the @SocInvPathol online congress meeting, where I was honored to receive the award for best oral presentation! Proud of the great @CbpLab talks & hope we get to see all in person next year! If you want to find out more on our work: https://doi.org/10.1042/BCJ20210137

📢 We are hiring! Join @JavierreLab in Barcelona
@CarrerasIJC . We are looking for computational and experimental postdocs with background on single-cell omics, gene regulation and B cells to work on a @WellcomeLeap funded project. For more information 👇
