Our laboratory focuses on the molecular genetics of parasites of the genus Leishmania, causative agents of leishmaniasis.
In the last years, we have incorporated next generation sequencing techniques for addressing issues of gene expression and genomic plasticity in this protist. This WEB server was created as a means of sharing the data that we have generated with people having interests for these topics.
We are working at the Dynamics and Genome Function department of the Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa (CBMSO) a mixed centre between Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and CSIC (Spain).
- Fasta files of the recently assembled, L. infantum genome are available (Dec 25, 2017)
- Anotation file (gff) of the genes annotated in the L. infantum genome is available (Jan 8, 2018)
- Ortholog Browser L. infantum vs. L.major available at L. infantum Browser site (Jan 8, 2018)
- An interactive viewer of CDS and transcripts has been added in the L. major Browser site (Jan 17, 2018)
- More than nine hundred bibliographic references with information related to specific Leishmania transcripts (and other trypanosomatids) are linked to the L. major orthologous transcripts (consult L. major Transcriptome Browser main Table) (June 21, 2018)
