DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER

Phytoremediation of heavy metal-contaminated soils. Evaluation of heavy metal tolerance in different varieties of Lupinus spp. Inoculation of tolerant Lupinus plants with bacterial strains showing different degrees of heavy metal tolerance in search of plant-bacteria pairs with enhanced tolerance. Quantification of heavy metal accumulation in plant tissues. Search for potential molecular and/or physiological markers of heavy metal tolerance. Evaluation of the results in assays with heavy metal-contaminated soils from different parts of Spain.
