Mr. Janse van Rensburg studied BSc Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa and graduated in 2013. Thereafter he continued his postgraduate studies at the Institute for Plant Biotechnology at Stellenbosch University, South Africa obtaining his MSc in 2015. He joined the research group of Prof. Wim Van den Ende in the Molecular Plant Biology laboratory at KU Leuven in Belgium for his PhD. His research is focusing on the effect of candidate priming molecules on plant metabolism and ROS dynamics during B. cinerea infection. He has published 3 scientific articles in SCI(E) journals.
Title : Metabolism and ROS dynamics are differentially regulated by aminobutyric acid in a concentration dependent manner to induce immunity against B. cinerea in Arabidopsis.
