M. Sc. Jenny Jocabet Meza (Master Student)

I'm an environmental science engineer by the Sonora Institute of Technology, for my thesis I worked with Plant growth-promoting native rhizobacteria from the Yaqui Valley in wheat crops. I’m interested in investigating the plant-bacteria interactions and their potential use as biofertilizers.

Master thesis successfully defended, December 2022

M. Sc. Ana Corral Federico (Master Student)

I am a biologist who graduated from the Faculty of Sciences of the Autonomous University of Baja California. My project consists of the isolation of diazotrophic bacteria associated with plants distributed in Baja California for the development of biofertilizers. I investigate the potential of these bacteria as plant growth promoters and antagonists against phytopathogens, as well as their effects on plants of agricultural importance in the region

Master Thesis successfully defended, November 2021

Undergrad Students

Biol. Indhira Hernández León (Undergrad Thesis/Profesional Practices)

I am an undergraduate biology student at the Autonomous University of Baja California. I am broadly interested in immunology and sustainable agriculture.  

Initially, at the Signal Translation and Agricultural Microbiology lab, I collaborated on a project regarding the characterization of a two component system. Currently, I am working on my thesis project.

Undergrad thesis successfully defended, March 2023

Biomed. Gema García (Undergrad Thesis 2022/Research Internship 2019)

My name is Gema Beatriz García González, I am 19 years old and I am from Culiacán, Sinaloa. I am currently studying biomedicine at the Faculty of Biology at the Autonomous University of Sinaloa. I consider myself a proactive person who likes to socialize and work as a team. My scientific interest is to continue participating in projects related to biological sciences to discover and solve current problems.

Internship research published, April 2022

Undergrad thesis successfully defended, October 2022

Ing. Cely Gaytan (Undergrad Thesis/Profesional Practices)

I am an Biotechnology Engineering student at the Tijuana University of Technology

Undergrad thesis successfully defended, April 2022

Internship Students


Biol. Maria Aquino (Research Internship, 2019)

I am a biologist graduated from the Autonomous University of Baja California. During my training I worked on a project on the ecology of Microtus californicus huperuthus in the La Grulla Valley, Sierra San Pedro Mártir. 
My main interests in science are conservation, molecular ecology, and biotechnology. My passion is to go to the field to obtain data and to be able to interact with nature. The Sierra San Pedro Mártir especially won my love after having visited it throughout my training.

Internship research published, April 2022

Biol. Arianna Jimenez (Professional Internship, 2019)

I study my last semester of Biology at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California. I joined Dr. Edgardo's laboratory to do my professional practices since I am interested in learning more about Molecular Biology techniques.

Ing. Edith González (Professional Internship/Summer Internship, 2019)

Biochemical Engineering student at the Technological Institute of Tijuana. I am interested in research in the area of microbiology and in studying a master's degree. My goal is to integrate into a research team and collaborate with cutting-edge projects. I participated in the committee of my undergrad program seeking to encourage science i among my colleagues.


Biol. Sheila Ramirez (Summer Internship, 2019)

My name is Sheila Ramirez, an undergrad student in Biological Pharmaceutical Chemistry, and a future graduate at the University of Guadalajara, by the thesis modality, which I find myself doing in collaboration with the phytopathology laboratory belonging to CICESE. Thanks to this project my interest in environmental sciences has increased, so I would be interested in completing a master's degree in this area in the future.


Miriam Gaspar (Professional Internship, 2018)

I finished my studies in Biology at the Autonomous University of Baja California, my academic interests include biotechnology applied to health and plants, molecular and genetic biology. During my training, I made an internship in the Laboratory of Toxicology at the Sciences Faculty at UABC working on the genotoxicity and cytotoxicity in agricultural laborers project. I have also participated in the exotic species monitoring workshop as well as in the design of immunogens.

Internship research published, April 2022



Ing. Jimena Rábago 

I did my bachelor’s in Agriculture, at EARTH University in Costa Rica. I’ve worked with organic agriculture throughout my career. I’m interested in investigating how microbial communities in soil get stablished, work and interact with plants in agricultural systems, in the hope that we can eventually manipulate these communities and push productive systems towards health, without the use of toxic chemicals.

Book Chapter published, January 2021
