Welcome to two new PhD students in the Wenkel lab
PhD students Anko Blaakmeer and Sun Bin have joined the research group of Stephan Wenkel, young investigator at Copenhagen Plant Science Centre.
Anko Blaakmeer studied biology at the Radboud University Nijmegen. For his final Masters project he went to the University of Nottingham, UK to work on the regulatory mechanisms between microRNA164, CUP-SHAPED COTYLEDON (CUC) and the F-box gene HAWAIIAN SKIRT (HWS). At CPSC, Anko will study differentiation events in the vascular elements of plants. His project “Adaptogenomics” is funded by DFF-FNU.
Sun Bin is a graduate from the State Key Laboratory of Silkworm Genome Biology, Southwest University, Chongqing, China. In his MSc project Bin worked on in vitro gene silencing by RNA interference in Nosema bombycis. At CPSC, Bin will work on the dissection of microProtein-complexes that have been identified by mass-spectrometry. For this research, he received a fellowship from the Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC).
Welcome to Anko and Sun!
