Project Description: Contribute to reducing the level of economic damage in the production of coffee Coffea canephora
in the main producing areas of Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, through the examination, evaluation and mass of available technology for Integrated Management Broca (MIB), identification of key technical problems in the production systems of this item and the recording and analysis of climatological information to uniquely identify specific climatic variations experienced in the region in recent years, which are affecting both crop performance as the insect, in order to review and make necessary adjustments to improve the efficiency of the strategies currently being developed to control the pest.
In their work, the researchers found that the sequences and positions of the genes in Coffea canephora
, the coffee plant commonly referred to as Robusta, evolved independently from genes with similar functions in tea and cocoa, which also make caffeine.
The Coffea canephora
species is classified into two groups: Guinean and Congolese, named in reference to their regions of origin: New Guinea and Congo, both on the African continent," explained Dr.

The phenylpropenoid amides are found in several plants, including Coffea canephora
, Theobroma cacao, Amorphophallus konja, Ipomoea obscura and Carthamus tinctorius (Niwa et al.
25) Of more than twenty different species, two account for the majority of coffee consumed worldwide: Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora
The researchers reduced the activity of key caffeinemaking genes in the coffee species Coffea canephora
Researchers deciphered the genome of Coffea canephora
, the second-most cultivated species of coffee.
Since it emerged on global markets a century ago, Coffea canephora
, commonly known as Robusta coffee, has consistently played second fiddle to its relative Coffea Arabica.
