01/2010–23/2016

PhD in Plant Biotechnology, University of Yaoundé I PROTEOMICS ANALYSES OF EMBRYOGENESIS IN Theobroma cacao (L.) Using proteomics as an analytical system, my PhD project aimed to uncover the intrinsic molecular mechanism that governs the transition from embryo to healthy seedling of Theobroma cacao (the chocolate tree). This project was primarily orientated toward the development of somatic embryogenesis as an alternative method for large scale propagation of cocoa elite genotypes.

Key publication: Noah MA, Niemenak N, Sunderhaus S, Haase C, Omokolo ND, Winkelmann T and Braun HP

(2013). Comparative proteomic analysis of early somatic and zygotic embryogenesis in Theobroma cacao L. Journal of Proteomics, 78: 123–133.

See the full list of publications and presentations on the related document. 09/2007–10/2009 Master in Plant Biotechnology

Main subjects studied:

- Molecular biology and biochemical techniques for assaying biological compounds such as sugars, amino acids, phenols, peroxidases and several other enzymes

- Research methodology and scientific drafting

- Final dissertation: Mass Propagation of cocoyam (Xanthosoma sagittifolium) in Temporary Immersion Bioreactor

09/2006–10/2008 Master in education

Main subjects studied:

- General knowledge on all the domain of biology and geology

- Conception of teaching content and management of a class room

- School administration

- Ethic and deontology of education

09/2003–06/2006 Bachelor in Plant Biology

Main subjects studied: Botany; Genetics; Plant Physiology and Experimental Biochemistry. RESEARCH SKILLS

During the course of my research I have built up a wealth of techniques including:

- Plant tissue culture: Somatic embryogenesis, micro-propagation, temporary immersion bioreactor

- Mammalian cell culture and transfection

- RNA extraction, qPCR and sample preparation for RNA sequencing

- Plant hormone metabolite extraction and purification (auxins and cytokinins)

- Biochemistry: Western blot, Protein chemistry, isolation and purification techniques, comparison of electrophoresis gel with DELTA 2D software, stage tip for peptide fractionation and hormonal metabolite purification, formulation of novel methodologies

- Proteomics: high-throughput protein identification on Orbitrap analyzer

- Bioinformatics: Experienced with Proteomic large dataset analysis with PERSEUS and CYTOSCAPE; Computational analysis of protein motifs and protein-protein interactions. I have successfully taken the online course Bioinformatics Methods II taught by Dr Nicholas J. Provart, Department of Cell & Systems Biology at the University of Toronto. In November, 2015, I participated in the training workshop organized by the European Institute of Bioinformatics (EBI) at Umea University, Sweden. 2(3)
