Acknowledgements

Acknowledgements together!). I would not forget to mention the great help I received from the secretaries Petra, Mariamme and Ellen and from the computer experts Peter and Jan. Hartelijk bedankt allemaal! Jaap provided me all the lily material I used in this thesis and gave me insightful information on lily biology during all these years. Peter Visser started the project on VIGS and I own him great part of the chapter 7 (I wish you and your family the best in Spain!). I would also like to thank the international community of Plant Research International, which makes this Institute really international. First of all, Raffaela, for the friendship and nice evenings (and congratulations for your most recent conquer, dottoressa!). Thanks for the time spent together and great discussions (scientific or not) throughout all these years to Nayelli, Asaph, Salva, Cinzia, Alessandra, Tetty, Nikolay (congratulations for your defense!), Rumyana (good luck in your Ph.D. program!) and Sophia, Fabrizio, Mazen, Hong, Paul, Andy, Ruud (yes, you are among the international ones!), Ella, Andrzej, Xinying, Daniele, Rada, Alex, Maria Teresa, Stephan Lunkenbein, Elena Kochieva, Ana Shchennikova (thanks for the help in the lab with those difficult techniques!), Ana Maria Quiñones (it was nice to see you again in Germany and I hope to see you somewhere in South America!), Silvia, Faye, Diana, Glória, Rodrigo (and his wife Viviane), Xevi, Santiago and Antonio. I shared also very good moments with friends that I met in the Dutch course I followed, especially Douglas, Berna and the new born Santiago, Cecilia Srihadi and family, Sandra (and through her, Berend Boer and los muchachos). I also shared nice moments with a very special person from South Africa: Santie de Villiers. She stayed for a short period at PRI, but she found time to teach me how to use the gene gun and helped me with the experiments reported in chapter 5. I will never forget our lunches together and your kindness. Congratulations to you and Etienne for Marcel and the new born Yvonne! Preparing a thesis is a tough task and this one could not be accomplished in the format it is here without the help of some nice people from Gerco's lab: Antonio Chalfun, Stefan de Folter and Richard Immink. Thanks for all your help and friendship! I also take this chance to recognise all the support I received from the Brazilian community in Wageningen, people with whom I shared and enjoyed my life during these years. My great appreciation goes to Claudine (thanks for being a sister since the beginning!) and her husband-to-be Sam (I wish you my greatest votos de felicidades eternas!); Paulo, Veridiana and Arthur (thanks for everything!); Antonio (once again!), Cristiane and a coming baby (I will be waiting for you in Brazil!); Eduardo and Isabela 138

Acknowledgements (two great souls); Marilia (thanks for your friendship and fraternity); Rômulo (thanks for your friendship and for the initiative of the e-mail list), Flávia and the new born Isabela; Irene (my professor at UFV and a great friend here) and Arne; Milza (I learnt so much from you!); Mário and Ana Cláudia (also great souls); Pedro Boff, Mari (my deepest admiration for you both!), Luigi and Bruno; Danny, Priscila and the new born Luka; Elaine (congratulations for your marriage to Celso and for the new born Lucas); Elisa; Sandro; Flávia Alcântara; Amaral, Cláudia and Samuel; Luiz, Gilma, Guilherme and Cristiane; Isabella and Stefano; Simone and Cristiano; Passarinho, Simone, Alissa, Arielle and Jonas; José Márcio, Regiane and Alissa; André, Raquel and Lucas; Odair and Glaciela; Marta, Sílvia and Teresa; Tarcísio, Franciene and Marina; Jorge and Flora; Renato and Denise; Rodrigo and Ana; Fausto; Francisco; Sara; Graça; Celso (thanks for taking over the e-mail list!); Joana; Mariana; Irene Guijt, and Joop (yes, you both are among the Brazilians!). I cannot forget to be grateful, of course, to my great Portuguese friends: Ana Martins, Catarina and Gonçalo (congratulations for the marriage! Once again, my wishes of happiness!) and Maria Barbosa (the doors of your heart are amazingly able to embrace the whole world!). I am waiting you all in Brazil! I met a small Brazilian community at the Benedictine Sint-Adelbertabdij in Egmond-Binnen and want to thank them for their wide-open heart. I felt home among you! I was also very well received by the Koninshoeven Abdij (where the 'La Trappe' bier is produced), near Tilburg, and also by the Sint-Willibrordsabdij, in Doetinchen. In these places I found peace and got strength to go on! Gratia vobis et pax. There is a Brazilian journalist and dear friend of mine that corresponded frequently with me during my period here, and to whom the Human Rights movement in Brazil is deeply in debt: Claudia Duarte. Thank you for sharing your views and beliefs with me! Mesmo distante, muitas pessoas no Brasil estiveram presentes neste período da minha vida na Holanda. Neste momento, eu gostaria de agradecer imensamente à Família Tasca (Valdecir, Sandra e Ana Paula), ao Padre Tiago de Paula e à toda Comunidade Nossa Senhora Auxiliadora (Diocese de Limeira), especialmente à Pastoral de Liturgia, que eu nunca me desvinculei. Também agradeço aos meus professores e colegas do curso de Teologia no Seminário Seráfico de Piracicaba, especialmente à profetisa e teóloga Irmã Sônia Batagin e ao teólogo e amigo Frei Osmar Cavaca. Obrigado por serem luz no meu caminho! Maria Teresa Derbyshire was always present during these years. Thank you very much for your support, friendship and for demonstrating that modesty and scientific knowledge can co-exist in the same person (thank you for believing in me so 139
