The Sustainable Superabsorbents (SSAP) aims for the creation of novel plant protein-based superabsorbent polymers (SAP), which are mostly produced from non-sustainable petrochemical sources.
The specific traits of a plant determine what the plant can be used for. Wheat is an excellent crop for baked products due to a specific type of proteins that no other plant contains, and that helps
This page is only available in Swedish for the time being.
The content and composition of different components in fruits, berries and vegetables naturally have a great variation and this can be used for end products with different properties. We investigate
Plant oil, starch and protein are central to human food security and the development of a biobased society. Our major research questions focus on the genetic factors determining the quality and
Nordfruit is the short name for a Public Private Partnership project on pre-breeding for future challenges in Nordic apples and strawberries established by participants from 7 Nordic and Baltic
Plant breeding will contribute significantly to future crop production systems because new cultivars must have an increased resistance to bacteria, fungi, insects, nematodes and viruses, improved
Our PhD students have projects that facilitate domestication and breeding of crops for Nordic as well as tropical growth conditions. DNA-based methods are adapted for studies of genetic variation and
Welcome to our thesis page. There is several students every year whom are doing their bachelor or master thesis at our department. Below are a few examples. Examples of theses done at our department:
We teach and perform strategic and applied research on horticultural and agricultural crops with the aim to provide knowledge, tools and products for a bio-based economy, improved environment and
Our department teach within the programs for Horticultural Science, Horticultural Management, Landscape Engineering, and Agricultural and Rural Management. We teach in subjects including genetic
