M.Sc. 2006 with Izeni Farias and Tomas Hrbek
Yane obtained her M.Sc. from the Biotechnology program of UFAM with Izeni Farias and Tomas Hrbek. Her thesis focused on paternity studies of Arapaima gigas from enclosed and semi-opened lake systems in two regions of the Amazon basin. To answer these questions, she used microsatellite markers to generate a genetic profile of offsprings collected from each nest, drawing conclusions about the reproductive system of this species. Yane is currently teaching biology at the Universidade do Estado do Pará in Santarém.
