Angelantonio Minafra

Angelantonio Minafra è attualmente Primo ricercatore e si occupa di studi inerenti la diagnostica molecolare e tassonomia e filogenia di virus delle colture legnose, principalmente vite e fruttiferi. Recentemente ha collaborato a studi di caratterizzazione biologica e molecolare di virus di fico, olivo e gelso, descrivendo alcune specie virali per la prima volta e applicando sistemi di diagnosi per il loro rilevamento in piante infette. Ha prodotto (i) costrutti di sequenze virali in Agrobacterium tumefaciens per la trasformazione genetica della vite ai fini della induzione di resistenza; (ii) costrutti per la espressione di proteine ricombinanti per la immunizzazione e la produzione di antisieri diagnostici; (iii) sequenze parziali e complete di genomi di numerosi virus della vite e di fruttiferi. Ha attivi contatti internazionali di collaborazione scientifica con Università ed Enti di ricerca pubblica (Francia, Spagna, Turchia, USA).
