Ph.D. Thesis

Analysis of an avirulence gene from Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola that determines cultivar specificity towards Phaseolus vulgaris L

Research Interests
  • Study of the microbial diversity in extreme environments using omic technologies
  • Use of Single Cell Genomics to access the metabolic diversity found in microorganisms
  • Designing and developing new tools for the study of the bacterial diversity
  • Bioenergy
  • Biotechnological applications
  • Detection of GMOs and pathogens
  • Plant – microbe interactions with main focus in the evolution of pathogenicity and virulence factors that lead to the development of disease
