University of Silesia, Poland


MSc Magdalena Korek studied Biotechnology at the University of Silesia, Katowice, and graduated in 2021. During her master's thesis, she focused on epigenetic mechanisms involved in the regulation of gene expression during the somatic embryogenesis process in Arabidopsis thaliana. In the meantime, she participated in a student internship where she was responsible for describing potentially pathogenic genetic variants obtained after human DNA next-generation sequencing. She then joined the research group ‘Plant Genetics and Functional Genomics’ led by DSc Daszkowska-Golec and worked with Hordeum vulgare, a model plant among crop plants, focusing on the newest class of phytohormones, strigolactones. Her doctoral dissertation is related to the crosstalk in strigolactones and abscisic acid signaling pathways and is supervised by DSc Marek Marzec.
