I am interested in every aspect of the genetics and genomics and theirs use in aquaculture. Following the successful genomic sequencing of several species of interest to global aquaculture such as Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout, our challenge now is to decipher the information encoded within their genomes and apply this knowledge to improve the sustainability of aquaculture. Are you interested in consulting services, click here!.
Currently my laboratory has an interdisciplinary group of professionals including marine biologists, biochemists, biotechnologists, agricultural engineers, aquaculture, veterinarians and mathematicians, with the mission of giving sustainability to the aquaculture industry. If you are interested in contributing to the development of aquaculture at a global level, write to me and let’s talk about alternatives for you to join our team.
Currently, I teach genetics, genomics and biostatistics in the following under and postgraduate programs.
PhD in Biotechnology offered jointly by Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso and the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María.
Master in Microbiological Sciences offered by Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso.
Our laboratory is committed to the effective development of dissemination, scientific communication and the training of new scientists and professionals, with the support of different research agencies (ANID CHILE, OCDE, STINT SWEDEN) and with the sponsorship of the Chilean Genetics Society.
Started in 2011, our genetics training portfolio has recently expanded to genomics and biostatistics training. It contains from short course to postgraduate diploma (Training opportunities here). Visit our github websites to download all the teaching material for free (BetaProjectR and GenomicsEducation).
Started in 2020 and after all schools were closed due to the pandemic, almost all our high school programs were moved online. GENETICS WITH PROGRAMMING is a curricular enrichment program for students of public schools in the Valparaiso region, which strengthens their cognitive and academic skills.
GENES AND GENOMES WITH PROGRAMMING is a summer school workshop open to high school students from all over Chile and soon to all of Latin America.
