ERIA A. REBOLLAR
I am a microbial ecologist interested in the symbiotic relationships between hosts (animals) and microbial communities. My research line focuses on analyzing amphibian symbiotic communities (microbiomes) from and ecological and evolutionary perspective. I am also involved in projects on the diversity and function of soil and aquatic microbiomes.
M.Sc. Emanuel Martínez Ugalde
My PhD project will focus on studying the biotic and abiotic factors influencing the function and community structure of skin microbiomes in Ambystoma altamirani.
Andrea Estefanía Rangel Pérez
The main goal of my undergraduate project is to determine competitive interactions occurring among bacterial isolates from Ambystoma altamirani.
Sara Lucía Anaya Morales
My project consists on determining Bd and Bsal prevalence and infection intensity in Ambystoma altamirani.
Aneli Vanesa Flores Hernández
The aim of my project is determining the biofilm formation capacity of bacterial strains isolated from Ambystoma species. This will help us determining whether biofilm formation is associated to other functional traits such as antibacterial or antifungal metabolite production, which could in turn influence the protective role of these bacteria on the amphibian skin.
M.Sc. Ángel Fernando Soto Pozos
As part of my PhD project, I am analyzing the skin microbiome and Bd infection status on plethodontid salamanders from the cloud forest in Veracruz.
I am describing the taxonomy of a bacterial collection derived from the skin of Ambystoma Altamirani.
