Brief bio: Femke worked in various fields of plant sciences, starting with protoplast proliferation and somatic embryogenesis, then focussed on the spliceosome, glucose-nitrate interaction, phenol glycoside pathway, and now on protein-membrane lipid interactions. Working on these various topics has deepened her fascination for plant sciences. She loves writing about this and hopes to extend her career in this direction.
