Dr. María Ávila
Population and Evolutionary Genomics
We use population genomics to study the patterns of genetic variation of human populations in Mexico and use paleogenomics to understand how they have changed through time.
Dr. Guillermo Dávila
Genome Dynamics and Evolution
Dr. Alejandra Medina Rivera
Regulatory genomics and bioinformatics
We design and develop bioinformatic approaches to unravel and study genomic regulatory mechanisms, aiming to identify genetic variants that could disrupt such mechanisms.
Dr. Lucía Morales
Saccharomycotina yeast genome evolution
We use non-conventional Saccharomycotina yeasts to illustrate the action of the major evolutionary forces acting on eukaryotic genomes. Our current research relies on the study of interspecies yeast hybrids stabilization.
Dr. Rafael Palacios
Genome Dynamics, from bacteria to humans
Dr. Daniela Robles
We use bioinformatic analyses to study the impact that genetic variants found in different populations, including those from Latin America, have on cancer origin and development.
Dr. Diego Ortega del Vecchyo
Computational Population Genetics
We develop and apply computational methods to infer past population history and to understand the impact of natural selection on patterns of genetic variation.
