Brief bio: I studied sulphoraphane’s role on Arabidopsis physiology during my thesis as a undergraduated student with PhD Andres Arruebarrena as my director. Currently, I start to work on science as a PhD student at Ana Laxalt’s Lab studying the role of Phospholipase C in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) and its relation with biotic stress, to do that we use CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology.
