Evolution of the technological properties and the metabolism of pectins during chicory root growth

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The aim of this project is to establish technologic and biochemical criteria to be used to compare and/or create chicory cultivars. We made a biological characterization of chicory roots by following, during root growth, enzymes involved in pectin degradation.
