Ms Myriam Solis
I made my undergraduate degree in Plant Biotechnology engineer at University of Concepcion, Chile and I worked in the Forest Pathology lab since 2012. My honours project was in Fungicide resistance of Botrytis cinerea in forest nurseries and the relation with the genotypes (population) and fitness of the pathogen. At the same time I worked in University of Chile in the same topic in grape crops. After my undergraduate I was research assistant in a project of endophytes microorganisms with potential application in Biocontrol programs where I collaborated in the monitoring of disease in forestry nurseries. In my MSc in biochemistry and bioinformatics, I worked in strategies of transcriptome assembly of Eucalyptus spp. under cold stress and studied proteins involved in the process. In my MSc I learned programing languages, R and Python, and I participated in a social program that taught Python in public schools. Now I would like to vinculate both areas (plant pathology and bioinformatics) in my PhD project. For this, I will be investigating about Teratosphaeria destructans, an important leaf fungal pathogen in Eucalypt plantations. For me, this project is a big challenge and a great opportunity to contribute in the study of the biological interactions in this pathosystem.
