Dr. Edgardo Sepúlveda (Group Leader)
I am a Biologist by the Faculty of Sciences and a Doctor in Biomedical Sciences by the Center for Genomic Sciences, both at the National Autonomous University of México. I held postdoctoral positions at the University of Tübingen, the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and the Program of Protein Evolution of the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen. My research interests include the discovery and characterization of transcriptional regulators and their associated signal transduction pathways in bacteria, the isolation, and characterization of plant growth-promoting Rhizobacteria, and the structure of the microbial communities associated to agricultural soils in Baja California.
Dr. Ana Laura Ramos (Guest Scientist)
I am a Doctor in Biomedical Sciences by the Center for Genomic Sciences at the National Autonomous University of México. I held research positions at the University of Marburg and the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have worked with ACPs in Sinorhizobium meliloti and peroxisomes in gammaproteobacteria. Currently, I work on the characterization of two-component systems and their regulatory networks in alphaprotebacteria.
M. Sc. Carmen Delgado (Master Student/Ph.D. Student)
I work isolating and characterizing Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). Particularly we seek to identify PGPR adapted to the climatic conditions of Baja California with the potential to be used in agriculture and help to reduce the use of agrochemicals as fertilizers and fungicides.
Ing. 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.
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.
Yessica Osorio (Undergrad Thesis/Profesional Practices)
My name is Yessica Osorio, I am currently a biology student at the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla.
I love biology because you are able to obtain different points of view of life and have a bonus that does not have any other career. In the same way it is exciting because every day you are surprised by and admire more of nature.
Now I am starting a social service in the area of molecular biology, reproduction and toxicology. But later I would like to go into the area of microbiology to perform applied science.
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.
