You are visiting the website of the Signal Transduction and Agricultural Microbiology Group at the Microbiology Department of the Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education at Ensenada, Baja California. We study soil bacteria with a holistic approach, within multiple dimensions, from the molecular reductionism of membrane sensors and two-component transcriptional regulation systems, through the individual isolation and study of single species of Plant growth-promoting bacteria, up to the ecological level with the characterization of microbial populations associated to agricultural soil.
Like bacteria, we thrive through collaboration and work hard to achieve a dynamic and harmonic interaction between members of our workgroup, and by engaging with our colleagues from Ensenada, México, and the world. We are the first Max Planck Partner Group stablished in México.
