Brief Profile

I am adept of designing and implementing experimental procedures in discipline such as plant pathology, genetic screening for resistance, botanical and inorganic control of vector of plant viruses. I am skilled in a wide variety of experimental techniques, including the use of biotechnological (molecular biology) and bioinformatics tools and am experience in both vitro and in vivo experimentation.
