The National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity is one of the leading research centers in Latin America.

It has high technology platforms to offer scientific services nationally and internationally and is one of the pioneers in sequencing complete genomes of Mexican species of agricultural interest and conservation.

We have 22 high quality research groups, distributed within five research areas:

  • Agrobiotechnology

    We carry out projects and research work in plants and other organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses that can affect the development of the plant in a positive or negative way.

  • Cellular and development biology

    Research in the Cell Biology and Development groups in Langebio is aimed at understanding the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that produce the diversity of life that we can observe in nature.

  • Computational biology

    We use bioinformatic tools and genomic data to understand the evolution of these molecules and the regulatory mechanisms in which they participate.

  • Structural and systems biology

    The emphasis of this area is to decipher genetic, biochemical and metabolic mechanisms, with important biotechnological applications, mainly in microbes.

  • Ecology, evolution and biodiversity

    The research is aimed at understanding mechanisms in various biological systems, including plants, animals and human populations, through the application of genomic, computational and molecular approaches of ancient DNA.

In our campus we have two graduate programs, each offering M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees.

Both are part of the national registry of quality graduate programs (PNPC Conacyt) and as such offer full scholarships for national and foreign students. The programs are jointly imparted by colleagues from the Irapuato Unit and Langebio Unit. In Langebio, our objective is to train a new generation of scientists to use the concepts, methods, and technologies that the genomic era imposes on Biology, as well as their technological applications in the frame of the sustainable use of Mexican biodiversity.
