How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My PhD thesis (2013) titled was “Integration of light signals through an auxin response factor” at the University of Sydney under rhe supervisoon of Prof. Brian Jones. From 2013 to 2015 I did a postdoc at Syd Uni, Agriculture faculty, working in light perception and control of ploidy levels using CRISPR/CAS9 tech.. Currently (2015 to 2017) I am an associate resercher at U. Catolica de Chile (CONICYT), to continue studying the application of CRISPR and Light perception in the forestry industry.

Citrus are a globally important fruit crop. Abiotic stressors such as drought and salinity adversely affect physiological citrus performance and survival. With the aim of improving drought tolerance in citrus plants, we constructed transgenic lines of Citrus lemon overexpressing the Arabidopsis transcription factor CBF3. Molecular, physiological, a...
Water-use efficiency (WUE) is a quantitative measurement of biomass produced per volume of water transpired by a plant. WUE is an important physiological trait for drought response to mitigate the water deficiency. In this work, a cisgenic construction from Citrus sinensis was developed and its function in the improvement of WUE was evaluated in Ar...
Background / Purpose: A neighbouring canopy filters out mainly Blue (B) and Red ® light and reflects and transmits Far Red (FR) and Green (G) light. Plants respond to changes in the ratio between R:FR through the phytochrome light photoreceptors (PHYA-E). Perception of blue light levels appears to be primarily through the cryptochrome and phototr...
A neighbouring canopy filters out mainly Blue (B) and Red ® light and reflects and transmits Far Red (FR) and Green (G) light. Plants respond to changes in the ratio between R:FR through the phytochrome light photoreceptors (PHYA-E). Perception of blue light levels appears to be primarily through the cryptochrome and phototropin photoreceptors, but...
Circadian regulated early ABA responsive genes. Genes shown to be upregulated by ABA were sourced from Genevestigator (Exp. ID: At-00420) from work published by Mizoguchi et al. (2010). Col-0 plants were grown on GM agar (16 h light/8 h dark, 22°C) for 2 weeks and subsequently treated with 100 μM ABA for 1 h. ABA responsive genes were analysed for...
Growth habit and developmental phase transitions in plants are acutely responsive to the quantity and quality of incident light. Information about neighbouring plants is primarily perceived by changes in the light environment. Arabidopsis is able to distinguish these changes through the phytochrome (PHYA-E) red light receptors that perceive changes...
Plant growth and development are intimately attuned to fluctuations in environmental variables such as light, temperature and water availability. A broad range of signalling and dynamic response mechanisms allows them to adjust their physiology so that growth and reproductive capacity are optimised for the prevailing conditions. Many of the respons...
Indeterminate growth and the production of new organs in plants require a constant supply of new cells. The majority of these cells are produced in mitotic regions called meristems. For primary or tip growth of the roots and shoots, the meristems are located in the apices. These apical meristems have been shown to function as developmentally regula...
In eukaryotes, trithorax group proteins play critical roles in the regulation of transcription, cell proliferation, differentiation and development. In this work we report the molecular cloning and characterization of SEPR11, a cDNA from the conifer Monterrey pine (Pinus radiata) encoding a polypeptide homologue of a trithorax group member describe...
