In this area we are interest in the study of the genetic basis of several traits of interest in aquaculture (sex determination, disease resistance and growth), parentage analysis and genomic methodologies in genetic breeding programs. Our research has been mainly focused on aquatic organisms. We have largely involved in technology transfer both to administration agencies related with conservation genetics and to aquaculture companies. The development of genomic tools for evolutionary studies and their application to aquaculture, such as genetic maps and oligo-microarrays to identify candidate genes related with productive characters constitute one of our main interest.
