Carolina Bertuzzi, a DSc student from Tessman’s lab (Universidade Estadual de Maringá), is joining the Del Ponte lab where she will stay untill completion of the studies to decipher the variability of Fusarium graminearum population causing head blight of wheat and barley in Paraná STATE.


During January, we will be hosting Gabriel Ferreira Paiva, an undergaduate major in Agronomy from the Instituto Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul, Nova Adrandina.
