I am a Biologist with a PhD in Plant Genetics, with more than ten years of experience in Molecular Biology and Plant transformation. I had produced rice transgenic plants with resistance against the White Leaf Virus, and found two genes for the flowering response to photoperiod in the common bean. My passion is to improve crops for a better world for people.
