Bacterias fototróficas anoxigénicas púrpuras no-sulfurosas en la fitotelmata de bromelias en diversos bosques de Puerto Rico
Due to the special arrangement of their leaves, plants of the Bromeliaceae family like bromeliad are capable of forming special structures that create an environment called phytotelmata. This aquatic microhabitat serves ...
Detection and identification of Cryptococcus neoformans/gattii complex in novel environmental samples using physiological and genetic tools
Cryptococcus neoformans/gattii complex (C.neo/gat) are opportunistic, encapsulated yeasts that adversely affect primarily immune-suppressed patients. The yeasts live freely in the environment, mainly associated to pigeon ...
Aislamiento y caracterización de cianobiontes de diversas Zamias en Puerto Rico
For the first time in Puerto Rico, the cultivable cianobionts of three species of Zamia have been isolated from sub-tropical forest areas. These cianobionts were morphologically identified and characterized by molecular ...
Isolation and Characterization of Antimicrobial Agent Producing Microbes and Generation of Metagenomic Libraries from Diverse Forest Soils in Puerto Rico
The misuse of antimicrobial agents is a world wide issue, since many opportunistic bacteria have acquired resistance or are becoming resistant to commercially available antibiotics. Antimicrobial resistance is not limited ...
