Our laboratory focuses on the molecular genetics of parasites of the genus Leishmania, causative agents of leishmaniasis.
In the last years, we have incorporated next generation sequencing techniques for addressing issues of gene expression and genomic plasticity in this protist. This WEB server was created as a means of sharing the data that we have generated with people having interests for these topics.
We are working at the Dynamics and Genome Function department of the Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa (CSIC-UAM), Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain).
- Fasta files of the recently assembled, L. infantum genome are available (Dec 25, 2017)
- Anotation file (gff) of the genes annotated in the L. infantum genome is available (Jan 8, 2018)
- One hundred of new bibliographic references has been linked to L. major transcripts (Jan 8, 2018)
- Ortholog Browser L. infantum vs. L.major available at L. infantum site (Jan 8, 2018)
