  • © 2012 o i-MOVE is an FP7 PEOPLE project coordinated by Regione Umbria (literal)
  • I-MOVE sponsors a fellowship scheme targeting experienced researchers with the objective to promote incoming and outgoing mobility between European and Associated States on one side and Italian research laboratories (also with links with the region of Umbria) on the other side in the fields of genomics, genetics, informatics and nanotechnologies applied to all aspects of life sciences. The programme is aimed at promoting the development of international mobility in order to accelerate interaction between industry and academia in favour of competitiveness and innovation. Fellows holding a Ph.D. degree or an M.D. with subsequent medical specialization (considered equivalent to the Ph.D. for the scope of this programme), or having at least four years of full-time research experience, can apply for either long- or short-term fellowships, the scheme is open to the whole national and international scientific community in line with the eligibility criteria set out by the European COFUND programme (under the FP7 Marie Curie Actions), co-financer of the initiative in the setting of the Marie Curie actions of the 7th Framework Program of the European Union. I-MOVE aims to create an instrument that provides qualified researchers with the freedom to choose both the scientific field and the host institution at a critical step of their career and at the same time progress toward the goal of building international links and collaborative networks.

  • WALNET: Walnut Landscape Genetics In The Native Range Persian walnut is highly economically important species and is cultivated hroughout the temperate regions of the world for its high quality wood and edible nuts. Establishing the center(s) of diversity for the species, understanding its post glacial expansion events and shedding light to its history of domestication and dispersal by humans which began about 2000 yr ago in Eurasia can predict how walnut species will respond to possible future climate change scenarios. This project (WALNET) is designed to provide valuable information on how spatial landscape features influenced gene flow and promoted local adaptation in walnut. The specific objectives of the WALNET at USDA-HTIRC, Purdue University (USA) are (1) detect and analyze genetic structure of a large and unique collection of 105 Eurasian walnut populations collected over twenty years by CNR-IBAF (Porano, Terni, Italy) using neutral SSR markers developed for Juglans spp. at HTIRC (2) assess the nucleotide sequence diversity in a subset of phenotypically characterized walnut populations by functional SNPs markers in 500 adaptation-related genes. The Roche 454 sequencing platform will be applied for genotyping thousands of SNPs simultaneously in a large number of samples( 3) compare the genetic structure of walnut as inferred by SSR and SNPs markers and search signs of local adaptation of walnut populations (4) apply landscape genetic analysis with support of GIS technologies and spatial statistics tools to identify and quantify the effects of refugia during Last Glacial Maximum, post-glacial expansion, physical and climatic barriers, human domestication events, anthropological factors and connectivity between rural human communities on genetic differentiation of walnut populations. WALNET provides a special combination of spatial genomics and ecological expertise and is designed to fill a huge gap in the current understanding of the evolution of domesticated tree crops such as walnut species.
