Neftaly Cruz Mireles

PhD Student
Nick Talbot Group, Proteomics

I am interested in signalling mechanisms during beneficial and pathogenic interactions in plants. Particularly, in how plants balance symbiotic and immune responses.

At this moment, I am doing a rotation internship using proteomics approaches to understand Magnaporthe oryzae infection.
