Center for Genome SciencesUNAM Campus Morelos
At present, we have deciphered the DNA sequence of hundreds of species, including humans. However, we still do not know the genetic basis of the interactions between organisms, their levels of regulation and the relationship with the environment.
In order to achieve these goals, in the Center for Genome Sciences (CCG in Spanish) we study multiple microorganisms, plants and animals within a highly collaborative and creative environment, working in teams that combine biology, chemistry, mathematics, computing and engineering.
The CCG includes the following Programs and Laboratories:
The Center for Genome Sciences (CCG in Spanish) houses the renowned Doctoral Program in Biomedical Sciences (PDCB in Spanish) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM in Spanish).
We are 23 researchers accredited as tutors in the PDCB with cutting-edge work in novel and transcendental areas of genomics such as the evolution of pathogenicity, the origin of symbiotic relationships, the antibiotics resistance, the epigenetic landscapes, the genomics of the sexuality, the genetic regulation in plants, etc.
Those interested in doing a PhD within the framework of the Genome Science, we invite you to explore this site to know further details about the PDCB program, our research teams, our most recent scientific publications, the latest successful PhD dissertations and the extracurricular activities that we organize in the GCC.
Genome science have an increasingly important impact in the prevention and treatment of diseases, the bioremediation of polluted ecosystems, improvements in agriculture, the ancestry of human populations, etc.
In consequence, the Undergraduate Program in Genome Science (LCG in Spanish) is committed to the training of young scientists who are capable of excelling in the different areas of genomics and who can help the country overcome its lags and achieve its goals.
For 15 years, the LCG has worked with a handful of students per generation, providing them with the best academic conditions in the classrooms and laboratories.
