Our group of work has the following primary missions:
i) Contribute to the advance of basic research and search the means for their biotechnological applications, (eg, creating non-profit academic associations, collaborative networks, companies, etc)
ii) Training future researchers, biotechnologists and venture entrepreneurs based on scientific knowledge
A team of researches studies -from a systems biology perspective- the molecular components and the operative principles -and their mechanisms- that drive the function of single-cell organisms.
We focus our research in single-cell organisms due their low biological complexity, fast growth, wide molecular/biochemistry knowledge and the wide repertoire of technological tools for their study.
We use all this knowledge and our ingenious creativity to bioengineer -from a synthetic biology perspective- new genetic circuits and cellular prototypes with improved/desired properties.
For this endeavor we continuously look for a multidisciplinary team working around these common objectives from disciplines such as computational biology, mathematical modeling and molecular biology.
