The National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity, is one of the leading 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 and conservation interest.

We have 22 very high quality and independent research groups, distributed within one of the five research areas that we develop:

  • Agrobiotechnology

    We carry out projects and research work on 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 Developmental Biology

    Research in the Cell and Developmental Biology 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 bioinformatics 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

    Research is aimed at understanding these mechanisms in diverse biological systems, including plants, animals and human populations, through the application of genomic and computational approaches and ancient DNA molecular techniques.

We offer two graduate programs, where you can study for a master's degree and/or a PhD.

Both are part of the National Register of Quality Graduate Programs (PNPC Conacyt) and, as such, offer full scholarships for domestic and foreign students. The programs are taught jointly by colleagues from the Irapuato Unit and the Langebio Unit. At Langebio, our goal is to train a new generation of scientists to use the concepts, methods and technologies that the genomic era offers in biology, as well as their technological applications within the framework of the sustainable use of Mexican biodiversity.
