Masters of Manipulation - how viruses shape our world
Since my first days in biology, I have been interested in how plants fight their secret battles against pathogens such bacteria, fungi and viruses. I did my Bachelors and Masters in Germany and Austria, working on good and bad plant fungi. Now for my PhD I moved to the SLU to study how viruses manipulate plants for their own benefit. A subject that will become increasingly important for our agriculture!
