Brief Bio:

Pure coincidence brought me to the Laboratory of Cell Biology at Institute of Experimental Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences where I started my PhD journey. For the first time I came in contact with protein and lipid research, especially protein-lipid interactions and their molecular background really became the main focus of mine and combining this research with phytopathology was just another advanced layer. Even though most of my experiments are performed on pollen from Nicotiana tabacum I never gave up on work with Arabidopsis thaliana and this paper is just proof of that.
