Research

In our Basic and Applied Microbiology lab, we are currently interesting in the study of the effect of several genes on the development in fungi, the expression of fungal proteins with biotechnology potential, the secondary metabolism of fungi, and the ecology and biotechnology of yeasts and fungi isolated from Antarctic environments. For these purposes, genetic engineering, bioinformatics and microbiology skills are used, and collaboration programs with national and foreign researches have been established.
