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.
