My research topic: Dicistronic tRNA-mRNA transcripts in plant systemic signalling and its application as a mobile genome-editing system.
My PhD project aims to understand the signalling potential of a new class of mobile RNA molecules in grafted grapevines. Furthermore, my project will take advantage of the natural mobility of these RNA molecules to test if a recently published CRISPR-based transgenic-free genome editing system can adapted for use in crop species.
