Curriculum Vitae of Rossini Laura
1992, B.Sc. IN BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES, University of Milan (Italy).
1996, Ph.D. IN GENETICS, University of Milan.
Professional experiences
European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) long-term fellowship
Fellowship from the Accademia Nazionale Dei Lincei (Rome).
Since 2000, RESEARCH SCIENTIST in plant genetics (permanent position) at DiSAA,
University of Milan. ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in Plant Genetics and Breeding, Plant
Development and Biotechnology.
Since 2008, she coordinates the Plant Genomics Section at Parco Tecnologico Padano
(PTP, Lodi), where she is based with her research group as part of agreements between
the University and PTP.
Research fields
LR has 22 years experience in crop genetics, genomics and molecular biology. In her
present position, a major focus of her research has been on barley genetics and
genomics as a basis for dissection of barley morphology and development. In this
context, LR was leader of WP “Gene isolation and new allele discovery” in the EU FP7
project TriticeaeGenome and she participates in the EU FP7 project WHEALBI, where
she is leading exome resequencing of a large collection of barley accessions. Recently
her research on cereals expanded to sorghum with the French-Italian BIOSORG project,
in which she is principal investigator for Italy. Over the past few years she also engaged
in peach genomics research, participating in the International Peach Genome Initiative
and the EU FP7 project FruitBreedomics.
Research interests
Plant genetics and genomics with special focus on developmental processes in monocot
species and fruit quality traits in fruit trees.
Regulatory mechanisms of gene expression.
Evolution and functional analysis of multigene families.
Comparative genomics.
