AMM_berlinI’m Alejandro Montenegro-Montero, a molecular biologist currently working as a Scientific Editor at John Wiley & Sons, Inc. My research was focused on gene expression regulation, specifically, on the characterization of transcriptional regulatory networks in eukaryotes. During my Ph.D., I studied gene regulation in response to stressful conditions, using the filamentous fungus N. crassa as a research system. In addition, I focused on how the circadian clock controls daily rhythms in gene expression in this organism.

I did my Ph.D. and subsequent postdoctoral work at the P. Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile. After that, I did a short postdoctoral stay at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, USA, before joining Wiley.

For 3 years, I was the Chief Editor of Health Science Reports, a general medical journal. Currently, I’m a Scientific Editor at Current Protocols, handling both molecular biology and toxicology manuscripts, and I work with multiple corporate partners to develop free tools and resources for researchers.

This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed here represent my own and not necessarily those of my current or previous employers.
