Welcome to the EnvironOme project


EnvironOme – Integrating Omics in ecotoxicology: tools for environmental risk assessment (PTDC/AGR-PRO/3496/2012) is a project financed by national funding through FCT/MCTES (PIDDAC) and the Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional (FEDER) through COMPETE – Programa Operacional Factores de Competitividade (POFC).

EnvironOme will adress the use of protein and gene differential expression as reliable tools in ecological risk assessment and to predict effects of toxicants in the individuals and populations of non-target arthropods.
