Dr Mendiondo is an applied plant biologist with a background in molecular and crop physiology. Guillermina works in both the lab, and in the field, trialling plant lines she has developed in realistic scenarios.
Guillermina’s research focuses on the impact of environmental stress on plant development, and the role of the N-end rule pathway in targeted proteolysis as a central hub integrating plant responses to abiotic stresses. She is particularly focused on agriculturally important crops like barley, brassica rapa, sorghum and wheat, identifying how the plants sense environmental changes that affect yield and crop quality. Her research aims to provide plant breeders with plant genetic resources tolerant of environmental stresses.
