My first approach to biology took place in the field of ecotoxicology, using the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus as the model organism. From in vitro fertilization I moved on to deal with the molecular aspect by analyzing three different pathways of programmed cell death following the activation or inactivation of certain genes due to the interaction with toxic substances.
The scholarship at the Stazione Zoologica of Naples gave me the opportunity to get closer to the world of microalgae, in particular to the Pseudo-nitzschia multistriata so as to expand my knowledge on the marine world. In the DiSCo project I deal with the preparation of algal coltures and their maintenance, the preparation of culture media, the isolation under inverted light microscope of individual algal cells both from natural sample and from coltures for population genomics studies.
