Dr. Jorge Rodríguez Celma is currently working as a Senior Research Associate in Universidad de East Anglia / John Innes Centre, UK. He got PhD in Science in 2012 from Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain. He has published about 20 SCI papers in Nature Plants, Plant physiology, Journal of Proteomics and so on.
The development of high-throughput techniques in the past years has increased exponentially the amount of data scientist posses to understand how biological systems work. However, the amount of data generated has also contributed to blur the general picture and hinder the answers to important biological questions. My research focuses on understanding the iron homeostasis in plants. We have generated and interpreted large datasets from proteomics and transcriptomics. Combining data meta-analysis and generating tailored co-expression networks have allowed us to raise important biological questions and focus on small subsets of genes to study them deeper. Mutant analysis, metabolite profiling and protein biochemistry have help us to uncover a previously unknown component of Fe uptake and is helping to unravel the mechanism for iron regulation through the slippery plant iron sensor.
