Ms Myriam Solis
I made my undergraduate at University of Concepcion, Chile in the Forest Pathology lab since 2012. My honours project was on fungicide resistance of Botrytis cinerea in Eucalyptus nurseries and its relation with the genotype and aggressiveness of the pathogen. At the same time I worked in the control of this disease at University of Chile on blueberries and grapes nurseries. Then, I was research assistant in a project about endophytes and diseases on Eucalyptus in nurseries. In my MSc in bioinformatics, I worked in strategies of transcriptome assembly of Eucalyptus spp. under cold stress and studied proteins involved in the process. 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 mix both areas (plant pathology and bioinformatics) in my PhD project. For this, I will be investigating about Teratosphaeria destructans, an important leaf fungal pathogen on Eucalyptus plantations, this study involve the anatomical, histochemical and molecular host responses and pathogen responses during the infection.
