Acknowledgements

Acknowledgements intensely!). My thanks go also to Prof. Elizabeth Fontes, the person that accepted me in her lab during my undergraduation, when I did not know even what a gene was! She herself taught me the basics of molecular biology, founding the basis of the professional I am today. The colleagues I worked with during my M.Sc. program will never be forgotten: Adriana Alves (thanks for all your help in the last moments of my M.Sc. thesis), Prof. Antonio Figueira, Prof. Adriana Rodriguez (thank you both for all the support for my return to Brazil!), Paulo Celso Farias, Lucimara Antoniolli (you are almost there!), Regma Caetano, Lili Stipp, Marcel Sposito (some days ago I saw your name on Folha de São Paulo!), Luis Carlos Rodrigues, Eliana, Marcio Leandro Tomaz (I am glad you return to the arms of Science!), Cássia Regina, Moraes (thanks for visiting me here!), Angélica Costa, Onildo, Juliana and João Costa, Weliton, Alice Franco and Márcia Calixto. There are some people I once knew in Viçosa and are still present until now in my life. They will never be forgotten: Eloísa Salustiano (Elô), Marcio Roberto Silva, Vanderlei Alves de Lima (Delei), Paulo Rogério Lustosa, Maria Teresa Gomes, Junior, Egnaldo, Thiago, Jane Aparecida da Silva, Roberta Ribeiro da Silva, Andréia de Paula, Fabio Gelape, Silvia Rocha, Luciana Abreu, Carlos Priminho, Marivone Gomes, Arcilan Assiren. All you left a good essence in my soul! Thank you very much! I also had a great pleasure in still being in touch with some old friends who studied with me during the high school in Dracena: Renildo Miranda, Jaques Bom, Luciano Seraphim Gasques (Passoka) and Gilson Guimarães. They are spread around the globe, but we keep each other in our hearts. Thanks for the presence during this time. Thanks also for my old pal Vagner Aleixo, who accompanied me during the almost 800 km of the Camino de Santiago. I cannot forget to express my gratitude my dear professor Adriano Raimundo, who introduced me to Science in the primary school (if there is one to blame why I am in Science, he is the one!). À minha família eu devo tudo o que sou: minha mãe Aparecida, meu pai Osvaldo, minha irmã Vânia e minha sobrinha Alana. Obrigado a todos pelo apoio e encorajamento constantes durante toda a minha vida. Também quero agradecer ao meu tio Chico (in memoriam), à Betinha, ao Léo, ao Igor e ao Ian, ao tio Joãozinho e à tia Cidinha e a tantos primos, primas, tios e tias que aguardam a minha chegada no Brasil. 140

ABOUT THE AUTHOR About the Author Vagner Augusto Benedito was born in Osasco, Brazil, on January 5 th 1974. Soon he moved to Americana where he started the primary school in the Antonio Zanaga II district at "E.E.P.G. Prof. Clarice Costa Conti". In 1989, he started the high school in Dracena together with the Agricultural Technical studies. His undergraduate studies in Agronomy were followed in "Universidade Federal de Viçosa" (UFV), where he discovered Science especially through Botany, Genetics, Statistics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. There he participated in the Scientific Initiation Program from the CNPq (the Brazilian Council for Research and Development), going to many scientific and politic congresses throughout the country and, in 1995 he won a national prize from SBPC (the Brazilian Society for Progress of Science) for his work with molecular biology of soybean, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Elizabeth Fontes. In 1997 he finished his undergraduate studies and initiated a M.Sc. program on Horticulture at "Escola Superior the Agricultura Luiz de Queiroz" (ESALQ), a campus of the "Universidade de São Paulo" (USP). His M.Sc. dissertation involved protoplast fusions and the regeneration of tetraploid citrus. After getting the degree in 1999, he moved to Wageningen, the Netherlands, and started a Ph.D. program on Plant Molecular Biology at Wageningen University (WU), developing his investigations at Plant Research International (PRI). He characterised important transcription factors involved in flower development of lily, under the sponsorship of Brazilian people through CNPq. Contact e-mail: vagnerbenedito@yahoo.com 141
