Karina AtriztánPhD student
Karina is a Biologist with a Master in Sciences and currently and undertaking a PhD at Langebio-Cinvestav, Irapuato, Mexico on the Biotechnology of Plants program. Her PhD project is focussed on the analysis of the genetic regulation of defence mechanisms of fungi against predators and regeneration process after injury, from a Metabolic and Transcriptional approach.
We are working on the curation of T. atroviride´s genome, specially focused in all genes that participate in metabolic pathways. These tools will help to explore the metabolic diversity in fungi, their genomic regions and genetic regulation, and it can also be used in other organisms that have available genomic information. The generated information will to contributing to the access of genetic information of compounds applicable to various biological areas.
