Ubiquitin, Proteomics, Angelman Syndrome, Parkinson, H2 production
We are a multidisciplinary research group with expertise in Molecular and Cellular Biology, Proteomics and Bioinformatics, and we work with cellular and animal models (flies and mice). The group is composed by an Ikerbasque research proffesor, 3 university professors, a technician, 5 postdoctoral researchers and 3 predoctoral researchers; financed by national and international entities.
Our main research line focuses on the proteomics characterization of ubiquitination on neuronal proteins involved in Angelman Syndrome and Parkinson disease, as well on studying the effects of such ubiquitinations. Additionally, we have recently initiated a new research line that aims to characterize the proteome changes associated with the production of H2 in the algae family Chlamydomonas, in order to improve the produciton of this clean and revewable energy source.
