Dr Luiza Lane de Barros Dantas

Research Assistant

Luíza currently investigates aspects of circadian regulation and circadian rhythms in plants.

During her PhD, she studied the role of rhythmic transcriptomes in multiple organs of field-grown crops, as well as the role of the fluctuating natural environment on circadian regulated transcripts and metabolites.

She also investigated the crosstalk between alternative splicing and seasonal temperature changes to regulate gene expression of the circadian oscillator homologs in crops.

As a postdoctoral researcher, she studied the role of primary metabolites on the Arabidopsis circadian oscillator adjustment to different environments, from controlled growth chambers to fields
