ANA MACHADO

Molecular Plant Pathologist

Biointeractions and Crop Protection

BIOGRAPHY

Ana is a postdoctoral research scientist in the Biointeractions and Crop Protection Department at Rothamsted Research. She is interested in phytopathogenic pathogens, plant and fungal genetics, molecular biology and RNA interference. Her expertise includes virus-mediated overexpression of heterologous proteins, bioinformatic analysis of fungal genomics, molecular biology techniques, and host-induced gene silencing. The postdoc position is part of the "Bilateral BBSRC embrapa-using disease risk forecasting, NGS and HIGS to explore and control Fusarium head blight disease in wheat fields", which consists of preparing and test silencing constructs in wheat transient assays and in transformed Arabidopsis plants to explore some of the potential mechanisms underlying the HIGS phenomena.
