Allene Macabuhay in the lab

Allene Macabuhay

Allene Macabuhay is a graduate researcher in the Jülich-University of Melbourne Postgraduate Academy (JUMPA) with UoM and the Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) in Germany.

Allene is investigating the phenotypic changes and biochemical mechanisms behind the plant root and beneficial soil bacterial interaction under heat stress. Advanced high-throughput shoot and root phenotyping platform will be utilized to closely monitor plant growth promotion through time and Lipidomics technology to resolve the mechanisms underlying the phenotypic dynamics of root membrane stabilization by PGPR under heat stress.
