Professor

Acinas, Silvia G.

My main current research topics are: (i) establish alternative approaches based on new sequencing technologies to explore microbial diversity at a global scale, (ii) testing some ecological models (neutral vs. niche models) to explore the Biogeography of bacteria and explaining the microbial diversity patterns observed in marine communities (iii) a global quantitative and qualitative survey of prokaryotic through high-throughput metagenomics/metatranscriptomics and other molecular ecological approaches to analyze dominant bacterial assemblages and metabolism associated to distinct oceanographic frameworks and (iv) analyses of uncultured ecological relevant bacterial genomes by single cells genome sequencing to develop new bacterial species concept in the ocean.

Out of the lab, I am enjoying photography, in special photojournalism and I love traveling, go out for hiking and of course spend time with my family and friends!
