(i) studies of phylogeny, population genetics of
marine species, (ii) assessment of main genetic parametres,
demographic history, genetic variability and differentiation in demersal fishery resources of the Adriatic Sea; (ii)
Stock assessment of ichthyc resources, in particular demersal
resources of the semi
enclosed Adriatic Sea
(e.g. S. vulgaris, M. barbatus, L. vulgaris, S. officinalis, N.
norvegicus and other) and scientific support to the sustainable
management of populations; (iii) genetic characterization of both wild and farmed
Solea vulgaris pools for restocking purposes and for marker
assisted-selection; (iv) development and application of molecular
markers based on DNA polymorphism analyses for fraud identification
in foodfish stuffs. She collaborates with local harbour-officer and
fish market inspectors for cases of detection by biomolecular tools
of mislabelling or frauds in foodfish products.
