Genome Engineering

This program is dedicated to the understanding of the forces and mechanisms that have forged the genomic architecture of proteobacteria associated with plants (specifically Rhizobium sp.), both in the short term and with an evolutionary perspective.

The long-term goal is to use this knowledge to develop new strategies in genomic engineering. To this end, our research seeks to understand the mechanisms and evolutionary consequences of homologous recombination, site-specific recombination during plasmid conjugation, regulation of conjugative transfer, functional genomics of plasmids (including functional analysis of genes encoded on plasmids and the role of extracytoplasmic sigma factors in stress responses), as well as molecular systematics, microevolution and phylogeography. Part of this knowledge is being integrated into the generation of new approaches for the generation of programmed deletions and global mutagenesis of the genome.

Our work combines bioinformatic analysis with genetic and molecular biology approaches as well as population genetics analysis.
