Wytynck Pieter - Postdoctoral fellow
Joined the group in 2022

I studied Bioscience Engineering at the university of Ghent focusing on Cell and Gene Biotechnology. After obtaining my masters, I did a PhD on improving the abiotic stress tolerance in crop species. Subsequently, I worked for 2,5 years at Biogazelle which is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) specializing in DNA- and RNA-based applications to support pharmaceutical research, clinical trials and diagnostic test development. As a scientist I provided scientific guidance to ongoing projects and R&D activities. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral researcher on the use of AI/Machine Learning in plant breeding on the BREEDIT project.
