Our lab is involved in several projects and are partnered with diverse institutions and initiatives:
Participamos de este programa de entrenamiento de profesores con un laboratorio móvil dedicado a la reproducción y el desarrollo embrionario
Our lab is interested in revealing the molecular and cellular basis of neural development, regeneration and innate immune function. We use genetic and genomic tools to discover molecular mechanisms and to characterize cell behaviors in vivo using zebrafish as a model. We also study other fish species to understand their evolution and adaptation to extreme environments. We are part of the FONDAP Center for Genome Regulation (CGR) and of the Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Chile.
In addition to our basic research, we have developed services based on the use of zebrafish (environmental toxicology and assessment, aquaculture research, compound screening). For further information, please visit the Danio Biotechnologies website.
We are part of the FONDAP Center for Genome Regulation, a Chilean Center of Excellence
With four other Centers of Excellence, we are part of the Chilean 1000 Genomes Initiative (Web site in Spanish)
We have initiated a start-up company that provides biotechnological solutions based on zebrafish
Modificando el genoma
En nuestro laboratorio, usamos tecnologías de modificación genética como la transgénesis y el CRISPR/Cas. ¿De que se trata?
