My project carried out at the KARE Center, a research facility run by the University of California, allowed me to learn how to work as an independent scientist as well as to work in a team. Being an Extension Center I had the chance to understand how to help the growers to have healthier fields. This was possible through the application of lab methodologies such as the microscope analysis, conventional plating, DNA extraction, PCR reaction, gel electrophoresis, sequencing of the DNA sequences and the application of bioinformatic tools such as Blast.
Besides, I acquired knowledge about the field work such as the collection of the samples, in vivo inoculation and spore suspension spraying.
