Molecular Genetics Lab

by admin


Our group is interested in studying Natural variation in yeast, particularly in ethanol-tolerant species and for this, we are isolating hundreds of new S. cerevisiaeS. uvarumS. eubayanusLachancea and Hanseniespora isolates from Central and South Forests in Chile. With this, we aim to identify the genetic variants underlying phenotypic differences across isolates for beer (wine, mead, cider and any kind of) fermentation and obtain new isolates suitable for the fermentation industry (with genetics knowledge!)

Would you like to be part of our team? We have PhD and Post-doc funding opportunities
