Brief review of research line:

Our research includes various topics within the areas of environmental microbiology and microbial ecology, especially we focus on determining the diversity of microbial communities in various environments, biotic and abiotic factors affecting, and in determining certain activities they perform. We use both classical breeding and molecular biology tools.

We are currently determining the influence of settlements Antarctic marine animals on the diversity of bacterial communities edaphic, with emphasis on those involved in the nitrogen cycle, and factors that determine the successful establishment of inter-specific associations using as cianolíquenes model, including representatives of gender Peltigera growing in southern Chile.
