Research focus

We are interested on understanding the molecular basis of Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation, using fission yeast mutants as a model organisms, and focusing on basic cell glycobiology underlying processes of the diseases. In particular, we focus in N-glycosylation and in the early steps of N-glycan processing.
We also use yeasts to express recombinant proteins, to perform functional complementation studies, to engineer strains to be used in bioremediation processes and other biotechnology applications.
