I have a BSc degree in Biology by the University of Porto. For this degree, here at PlantBio, CIBIO-inBIO I focused on the effect of zinc deficiency in Arabidopsis root development, more specifically on how Zn deficiency influenced the growth of the primary root and the density of lateral roots.


Currently, for my MSc degree in Functional Biology and Biotechnology of Plants, I am still focused on Arabidopsis root development modulation under Zn deficiency. But this time I want to assess the expression pattern and sub-cellular location of ZIP transporters (proteins responsible for Zn uptake and translocation) and also the effect that Zn deficiency might have on phytohormones metabolism and transport.
