About the article
Dr. Inmaculada García-Robles studied Biochemistry at the University of Valencia, Spain. She did her PhD (1999) on pest bioinsecticides at the Genetics Department and afterwards, two postdoctoral stages at the Cavanilles Institute (Valencia) and EMBL (Grenoble outstation) working on human virology. In 2005, she returned to the University of Valencia as Adjunct Professor in the Genetics Department, where she is also working in the study of the mode of action of Bacillus thuringiensis toxins.
Dr. Jesús A. Sánchez Navarro graduated in Biochemistry at the University of Valencia, Spain (1991). After obtaining his PhD in Biological Sciences (1998) at the Genetics Department of the Murcia University, he did a postdoctoral stage at the Gorlaeus laboratories (Leiden University, The Netherlands) focused on the transport of plant RNA viruses. In 2001, he got a research scientist position at the Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology Institute of the Politechnical University of Valencia-CSIC. His main research interest is the field of plant viruses focused on the transport and the development of new viral vectors and detection methods.
