Introduction

Almeria, the leading European region in terms of fruits and vegetable production and exportation, is emerging as a prominent innovation hub for greenhouse technology and production. In the field of plant breeding, Almería concentrates a significant portion of the total horticulture seed business activity among the world. Indeed, the most notable Spanish and international companies are based in Almeria, producing novel horticultural varieties through intensive research and development programs. These novel varieties ”made in Almeria” are not only used in this Spanish region but also exported and cultivated in many different greenhouses all over the world. The area of Genetics at the University of Almería is in close collaboration with the seed companies and the productive system of Almería. More precisely, the HORTICULTURAL GENETICS research group accumulates more than 25 years of experience focusing on research and teaching activities in the field of plant biotechnology and breeding. The goal of the present course is to share our theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the biotechnology methods and tools widely used in horticultural crops breeding and production. To do so, our multidisciplinary group encompass the fields of genetics, plant physiology, plant production and food technology allowing us to perform high-throughput plant phenotyping for abiotic and biotic stress tolerance, nutrients, drought and salinity tolerance, and postharvest fruit quality. The phenomics studies are followed by molecular studies through high-throughput genotyping using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and bioinformatics analysis in order to identify plant materials, molecular markers and genes useful for developing novel cultivars...

REACH and OSH legislations are aiming at the same goal: safety, health and wellbeing of a worker handling chemical substances at work. Terminology and the overall language used within these legislative frameworks differ from each other. At an average European workplace the personnel handling REACH issues or CAD issues may be different. Registrant and a downstream user may have difficulties in communication. In addition to the practical issues causing discrepancies, in a broader perspective, also more profound differences in the philosophy of the two sets of legislation can be pointed out. This has to be understood in order to guarantee proper implementation. A good example of this is setting the European OELs vs. DNELs.... [-]
