Marine Microbiology Group at IMEDEA

  The Marine Microbiology Group at the IMEDEA is an emergent research unit headed by Ramon Rosselló-Móra. The main focuses of research are prokaryotic systematics, benthic marine microbial communities, and extreme halophilic microorganisms. The group is currently formed by two postdoctoral researchers Arantxa López-López (responsible for the metagenomics and extremophilic anaerobic microbiota studies), and Michael Richter (responsible for the bioinformatics). In addition, the group engages three Ph-D students, Jocelyn Brito-Echeverría (working with metabolomics of Salinibacter ruber), Ana Belén Suárez-Suárez (researching on marine benthic microbiota), and Pablo Yarza (responsible for the All-Species Living Tree Project). Finally, the technical assistant Mercedes Urdiain is engaged to keep the protocols running and responsible for the correct functioning of the future Molecular Biology Service Unit of the Institute.
