Short Biography

Satomi graduated from The University of Queensland in 2006 with a Bachelor of Sciences majored in Botany and Biochemistry. Following the undergraduate studies, she started her honours year at the Centre of Excellence for Integrative Legume Research (CILR, UQ) under the supervision of Prof. Peter M Gresshoff and Dr Mark Kinkema with her project titled "Analysis of the Expression and the Function of Lipoxygenase Genes in Soybean Nodulation ". She now continues to do her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Peter M Gresshoff and Dr Brett Ferguson, where she further investigates the molecular events involved in the early stages of soybean nodulation via transcriptome analysis approach.
