The lot is part of the collaboration agreement maintained since 2017 by the German Agricultural Research Center KOB and the scientific entity of Ciego de Avila, adjacent to the Máximo Gómez University. The materials and reagents received are aimed at working on the cultivation of cells and tissues in vitro of plants, and for the assembly of temporary immersion bioreactors that facilitate the biotechnological multiplication of different plant species.
One of the Avileñas benefiting from this agreement is Claudia Linares, who is part of the multidisciplinary research team working on a scientific project between Cuba and Germany to obtain ecological pesticides, using moringa and garañón plants.
For the young researcher, the supplies are very beneficial because they make it easier to carry out chemical analysis and technical execution at laboratory scale.
The donation also includes two weather stations to measure temperature, humidity, wind speed and other indicators needed in the process of studying and developing the Cuban institution’s biotechnological research.
