José Maria “Txema” Rincon Garriz
I have always been drawn to science, any kind of science. I chose to pursue studies in biology in Geneva. 20 years ago, I obtained my Master’s degree in Microbiology based in molecular biology. My first research work at the time was on understanding the remodeling of structural proteins involved in the apical growth (tubulin mainly) of Neurospora Crassa filamentous funghi. That’s how I discovered molecular biology and got first acquainted with the field of genomics.
