Agnieszka Siwoszek

Senior Research Assistant
Jonathan Jones Group

During my PhD project I worked in Hans Thordal-Christensen’s lab on the barley – Blumeria graminis interaction. My work was focused on generating resistant barley lines. This resistance is based on the peptide aptamers specifically targeting barley powdery mildew effectors. Afterwards, I joined Silke Robatzek’s group as a Research Assistant, where I was managing the laboratory and supporting different projects. In 2017 I moved to a start-up company, where I was involved in developing novel varieties of banana and coffee with use of genome editing.

Currently, as a Senior Research Assistant, I am responsible for the laboratory management and support of different projects.
