Alasia Franco Vivai drives forward the development of poplar
WATBIO is a European Framework 7 funded collaborative research project focused on the genetic improvement of three perennial biomass crops: poplar, miscanthus and arundo. The project started in November 2012. The goal of WATBIO is practical: to deliver knowledge and technology to improve the production of biomass under water-stressed conditions.
