Beatriz Jorrín

jorrin-webI’m a post-doctoral research assistant (or PDRA) in Phil Poole’s lab. During my PhD thesis research I acquired a strong background in rhizobial genomics and population genomics, together with legume host specificity. I have joined IUNFC (India-UK Nitrogen Fixation Centre) whose aim is to study pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan) symbiosis, as well as cereal endophyte colonisation. My scientific background in conjunction with the molecular high-throughput tools available in the Poole Lab mean we can deeply study this symbiosis in order to improve the pigeon pea yield in India.

If you have any inquiry related with rhizobial genomics, please do not hesitate to contact me: beatriz.jorrin@plants.ox.ac.uk
