Event description

On behalf of the MycoKey project (www.mycokey.eu) we are glad to announce the training course “Strategies for minimization of mycotoxins and toxigenic fungi in food chains”, that will be hosted by the Institute of Sciences of Food Production (ISPA-CNR) of Bari. The course aims at training smart, integrated, sustainable solutions and innovative tools to manage and reduce the major mycotoxins (aflatoxins, fumonisins, trichothecenes and ochratoxin A) in economically important food and feed chains (maize, wheat, barley, dried fruits and grape) in pre and post-harvest. Advanced technologies in the field of chemical detection, molecular analysis, modelling and ICT solutions will be covered by highly qualified international instructors, throughout lectures and laboratory experiences. About half of the duration of the workshop will be ”hands on” and spent in the laboratory.
