Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Ph.D. Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Michigan State University Post-doctoral Bioinformatics and Genomics, Michigan State University
My research interests include: Understand the relationship between microbial community structure and function in natural and managed tropical ecosystems; microbial diversity in tropical ecosystems; detection and identification of microorganisms in natural environments; genome sequencing, annotation and analysis; and to understand the ecology of microbial populations based on genome information. To address some of these questions we employ methods in microbiology (enumeration, isolation, activity); molecular biology (PCR, real-time PCR, cloning and sequencing), biostatistics (univariate and multivariate) and bioinformatics (PERL and R programming, sequence analysis, phylogeny, primer design).
