ALMERÍA.- Once again, and for the second consecutive year, the CITE III graduates hall of the Almeria campus has had a sample of the so-called “research muscle” of UAL. The III Scientific Day of San Alberto, this year 2022 without a mask, once again repeated in person what began with great success in 2020 in a telematic way. It consists of the prizes awarded by the Faculty of Experimental Sciences, on the occasion of the feast of its patron, to research work carried out within the University of Almería and published in journals of the first quartile of the JCR. The act itself is designed, in any case, to encourage synergies, since the laureates are the protagonists of a succession of flash communications which summarize the most important aspects of their respective work and from there are born avenues for future collaborations.
After the celebration this November 15 of a good number of events for San Alberto, including the Symposium for the students of the Faculty, the turn of this day of end of the activities corresponded to the PDI. This initiative has once again been applauded by the scientific community of the University of Almería, as it has been appreciated as a moment of meeting to discover what colleagues from each of the four areas in which the University is present are doing. . who publish articles in prestigious journals. Each award-winning paper had its presentation, with a total of 13 being included in this year’s list of winners. In any case, and as has happened in the two previous editions, there are many others who have a very high rating and who could not participate precisely because of the excellent quality generated by the ‘UAL.
Remember that the Faculty of Experimental Sciences is present in Biotechnology, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Chemistry, and three prizes are awarded in each of these areas. The richness of the act is indisputable by the thematic variety it brought together, in addition to the impact and international recognition obtained by the articles exhibited in just five minutes. Rosalía López Ruiz began with her work titled “Recent Applications of Chromatography for the Analysis of Contaminants in Cannabis Products: A Review”. This starting signal took place at 11 am, leaving a margin of ten minutes between interventions to ensure a good rhythm. So, Tomás Lafarga continued at 11:10, in his case with “Production of the marine microalgae Nannochloropsis de Cádiz in pilot-scale thin-film cascade photobioreactors using fresh pig manure diluted with seawater” .
The third round of intervention corresponded to José Antonio Sánchez Pérez, who summarized the content of his work under the title “Simultaneous bacterial inactivation and elimination of microcontaminants by solar photo-Fenton mediated by Fe3+-NTA in the secondary effluents of the plant purification”. Next was Mar García Valverde, with “Fate, modeling and human health risk of organic contaminants in tomato plants irrigated with reclaimed water under real field conditions”. The fifth intervention was that of Juan Capel Salinas, who explained his study “The functional characterization of the tomato HAIRPLUS gene reveals the involvement of the epigenome in the control of the glandular formation of trichomes”. As for the sixth person involved, it was Francy Daniela Alba Patiño, giving the details of the “Social indicators of ecosystem restoration to improve human well-being”.
At noon, 12:00, José Carmona Tapia spoke, in particular with ‘Lineability, spaceability, and latticeability of subsets of C ([0, 1]) and Sobolev spaces”. Next was Antonio Jiménez Vargas, talking about his work ‘On local isometries between C(Y)-valued differentiable map algebras’. Immediately after, it was the turn of Araceli Rivera Pérez, who in his case gave details of the “fingerprint based on Orbitrap high-resolution gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and chemometrics to reveal the geographic origin, processing and volatile markers for authentication of thyme”. Tenth place went to Encarnación Fenoy Castilla’s survey, titled “High temperature can reduce functional but not taxonomic diversity of fungal assemblages on decaying leaf litter in waterways.” Then Blas Torrecillas Jover took the floor, along with ‘Galois and Cleft Monoidal Cowreaths. Apps’. He was followed by Juana María Pérez Galera and her research titled ‘Manganese (I)-Catalysed H−P Bond Activation via Metal−Ligand Cooperation’. Finally, Joaquín Alonso Montesinos detailed “Solar power plant fouling prediction: a combined heuristic approach and an autoregressive model”.
