Back to top

New Content ItemJorge is an Associate Professor at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina and a Principal Investigator at the Institute of Genetic Engineering and Molecular Biology “Dr. Héctor N. Torres” (INGEBI, CONICET), Buenos Aires, Argentina. He got his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1991. He then trained as a post-doctoral scholar at the Plant Gene Expression Center – University of California at Berkeley (Sheila McCormick’s lab), United States, from 1992-1996.

His lab uses Arabidopsis and tomato as model systems to study the genetic and molecular mechanisms that control pollen pistil interactions and plant fertilization. His lab focuses on the biochemical and physiological events that take place in the pollen tube during his journey towards the accomplishment of double fertilization of the female gametophyte.

Jorge joined the Editorial Board of BMC Plant Biology in 2011 and has been a Senior Board Member since 2020.

Nicola Busatto, Senior Editorial Board Member

Back to top

New Content ItemNicola Busatto obtained in 2012 his PhD at the University of Padua in Plant Biotechnology studying the molecular dynamics governing the ripening process in climacteric fruits (peach and tomato) and investigating the role of hormone crosstalk in the regulation of such physiology by means of a functional genomic approach. From 2016, he has been working as researcher at the “Research and Innovation Center - Foundation Edmund Mach (Italy)” in the “Fruit Crop Genomics and Breeding” group. His efforts are focused in unraveling the genomic and molecular basis that underlie the fruit ripening dynamics and quality traits to develop improved apple cultivars and assist traditional breeding programs. A particular interest is devoted to the comprehension of the molecular mechanisms involved in the physiological disorders correlated to the cold storage and post-harvest stage. His research interests span ripening physiology in different model systems, hormone regulation and functions, abiotic stress responses, transcriptional regulations, fleshy fruit development and evolution. Nicola has been a Senior Editorial Board Member for BMC Plant Biology since 2020.

Paul Boss, Senior Editorial Board Member

New Content Item

Paul completed his undergraduate degree and an MSc at the University of Auckland in New Zealand investigating the causes of browning in apples.  He then moved to Adelaide, Australia to take up a PhD scholarship studying the production of anthocyanin pigments in grape berry skins.  Following this, Paul worked at CSIRO to investigate inflorescence formation in grapes.  This interest in flowering and molecular genetics lead Dr Boss to the John Innes Centre in Norwich, England where he worked on flowering in the model plant Arabidopsis.  In 2004, Paul returned to Adelaide to lead a research group at CSIRO investigating flavour and aroma development in grape berries, with a particular interest in the link between grape secondary metabolism and wine flavour and aroma. His current research activities bring together the disciplines of analytical chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics to understand the impact of environment, management and genotype on grape secondary metabolism. Paul joined a journal as a Section Editor and is currently a Senior Editorial Board Member since 2020.

He then moved to be a post-doctoral scholar at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, the Waksman Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers University, and the Boyce Thompson Institute at Cornell University. He joined the faculty of the University of Kentucky in the Department of Plant Pathology in 2002, where since 2013, he is a full professor. His work has significantly contributed to our understanding of Signalling pathways regulating host-pathogen interaction. His group uses Arabidopsis as a host model and to study molecular, genetic and biochemical mechanisms governing response to infection by various different microorganisms. His work made multiple advances that are foundational to our understanding of plant disease resistance. He is a recipient of the Noel T. Keen Award for Research Excellence in Molecular Plant Pathology. University of Kentucky in the Department of Plant Pathology in 2013. He joined the Editorial board of BMC Plant Biology in 2009, became a Section Editor for the ‘Plant-Biotic Interaction’ Section and currently is a Senior Editorial Board Member of the journal since 2020. 

Yuling Bai, Senior Editorial Board Member

Back to top

New Content ItemDr. Yuling Bai, professor working at Plant Breeding, Plant Science Department of Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands. Since 2007 she has been leading the research group of “Breeding for Resistance”, with the aim to develop breeding strategies for durable resistance in different crops. The research focuses on the understanding of genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying disease resistances in vegetable crops against pathogens. Various genetic and genomics approaches are exploited to discover novel plant resistance and susceptibility genes and to study their interaction with the corresponding pathogens. The strong point in her research is its translational feature: overarching strategically the fundamental research to applied breeding practices. Her research has resulted in many publication in scientific Journals with high impact factors and also led to great impact in breeding practice by developing novel breeding strategies, tools and prebreeding plant materials. She is associate/senior editor for several scientific Journals and Chairperson of the Vegetable Section of EUCAPIA (European Association for Research on Plant Breeding). Dr. Yuling Bai joined the BMC Plant Biology editorial board as an associated Editor several years ago, became a Section Editor in June 2019 and has been a Senior Editorial Board Member since 2020.
