The group focuses its research lines on the development, validation and implementation of molecular techniques for the diagnosis and typing of infectious agents such as Trypanosoma cruzi, Leishmania, intestinal parasites, Clostridium difficile, Chlamydia trachomatis, Dengue, SARS-CoV2 and Candida. Likewise, the knowledge of the molecular ecology and genetic diversity of these agents for the construction of epidemiological circuits and to understand their philodynamics in order to provide strategies for the control and prevention of these diseases. These epidemiological circuits are an important component of our research since they are subjected to climate change scenarios in order to know in depth the ecology of the diseases. Likewise, the group performs phylogenetic analysis and expression profiles using RNA-seq to understand the population biology of these microorganisms and virulence profiles to answer questions related to pathogen/host interactions. The group is also interested in understanding the population genetics, biology and vector evolution of Chagas disease (Rhodnius, Triatoma and Panstrongylus) and leishmaniasis
