Welcome to the website of our lab!


We are part of the Center of Genetics and Genomics at the School of Medicine, Universidad del Desarrollo. Also, we are associated with the recently created program of Microbial Genetics


The main focus of our research group is to the study of the evolution and adaptation of microorganisms using genomics approaches.

For this, we use multiple approaches, including:

  • Comparative genomics
  • Metagenomics
  • Bioinformatics

We are always looking for ideas, comments, collaborations, etc. Feel free to contact us via Twitter (@JuanUgaldeC) or email (jugalde@udd.cl).
