Study of the genetic and molecular bases of genotype-environment interactions plants.
Isolation, sequencing, characterization and mapping of genes induced in response to abiotic stresses in crops (Triticum durum, Triticum aestivum, Hordeum vulgare, Zea mays, Heliantus annuus).
Effects of the environmental conditions (cultivation techniques, water regimes, fertilization) on proteome quality in rice and wheat. The seed proteome is analyzed by 2D-PAGE and mass spectrometry to characterize the reserve seed proteome in the Italian wheat and rice varieties.
Genetic and epigenetic mechanisms involved in accumulation and traslocation of heavy metals in hyperaccumulator species (Noccaea caerulescens).
Molecular traceability of food supply chains for food safety and food authenticity.
GMO traceability in food chains using advanced genomic methods for DNA analysis. In particular different PCR systems were developed (qualitative, competitive, nested, real-time) and multiplex PCR methods (qualitative and quantitative), that are instrumental for the implementation of molecular array platforms.
Allergenic species traceability in processed foods. Qualitative and quantitative PCR methods were developed for the identification of the main food allergens. A patent has been registered on this application.
Development of molecular markers for fingerprinting and species identification using conventional and advanced PCR methods (RT-PCR, Multiplex PCR, HRM PCR, Array).
Coexistence of genetically modified plants with non-modified plants. Sampling systems and molecular analyses. Effects of the environmental conditions on GMO plants. Maize hybrids, conventional and GM, were cultivated in different water regimes to study the consequence of the genetic modification on the stress response at the physiological and molecular levels.

She authored over 40 papers in international journals, 9 book chapters, 1 PhD thesis, more than 100 participation to national and international meetings, 1 patent.
