The coordination of the program, depending on the situation, will resolve your early admission, if applicable. Consult some indications that may be useful for you to pre-register online: What to do if you have taken a master's degree in Spain and you do not find it in the list of masters that are listed in the university where you studied it? If you have a master's degree official in a Spanish university and when you indicate the university does not appear in the list of masters, you can indicate as follow: Choose the option "Master obtained outside Spain". In the field of studies indicate the name of the studies you have taken for example: "Master in Information Technology".

Remember that you will have to indicate if you have finished it or not and, once informed this field, click the 'Next' button to continue the online application. Considerations for filling in personal information In the institutional email field, if you do not have it indicated, you must add your personal email address.

Regarding the birth zip code, if you were born in a Spanish population that has more than one code, you can indicate any of them.

If you apply for more than one doctorate at the UAB, the application will retrieve the information of the mandatory documentation that you indicated in the first application for doctoral access. If the second request asks for other documentation, you can indicate it in the optional documents. If you do not find your university registered in the system, you must select any other university in your country and in the field of observations of the same application indicate the name of the university where you got the degree.

The plants we are using reveal extremely high growth rates and can easily be kept in sterile culture. In particular we focus on the duckweed Wolffia australiana because of its enormous potential as a bioreactor. A second research topic deals with the microalgae Chlamydomonas and the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum.

We produce various proteins in these plants, which all proteins of pharmaceutical interest: Antibodies of different formats, allergens or antifreeze proteins are just a few examples.

Agricultural Biotechnology Research

In our group, we use state-of-the-art molecular biological methods, e. Depending on the species, the plants are transformed by agrobacteria, gene gun or protoplasts. We are in charge in various research collaborations. You can find out more about the most important on the following pages:. Hust's research group produces recombinant antibodies in various formats.

Furthermore - also due to an exchange programme with the Northeastern University Boston, which has been supported by the DAAD since the 70s - we maintain close cooperations with working groups at the university there, e.
