Presentation

Dr. Marcelo Rogalski is a biologist and received his doctorate in Molecular Plant Physiology from the University of Potsdam/Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, Germany, in 2008. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Molecular Plant Physiology in the Plant Biology Department of the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV). He has published several scientific papers in international journals, and most of them are related to evolution, genetics, genomics and biotechnology in plastids. He is also focusing his research on the genetic transformation of sugarcane and Brachypodium. Genetic transformation of these grass species will help to further studies on the physiological aspects of growth and biomass accumulation in grasses.

Research interest

Molecular plant physiology with an emphasis on different aspects of plastid biology and plant biotechnology.

Current projects include
  • Phenotypic, physiological and molecular analyses of transplastomic tobacco plants expressing cyanobacterial desaturases
  • Deciphering mitochondrion-chloroplast crosstalk via molecular and metabolic profiling analyses in plastid translation mutants
  • Tissue culture and genetic transformation of Bixa orellana
  • Tissue culture, evolutionary aspects and genetic transformation of Passiflora
  • Evolutionary analyses of plastid ribosomal protein genes in different accessions of Phaseolus spp. and Vigna unguiculata
  • Genomic and transcriptomic analyses in Brazilian conifers for conservation, evolutionary, molecular and biotechnological studies
  • Biotechnology and applied genomics in sugarcane breeding
