Difusión y Transferencia


Several lectures/conferences/seminars on Environmental Microbiology, Microbes on Earth, Microbial Biotechnology to non-specialist people (Salmon Industry, Copper Mining Industry, Pulp and Paper Industry, high school students, and scientists that are not experts in the field (Engineers, Physicians), and general public (around 250 attendees in total). Most of them in Santiago, but also in Puerto Montt, Copiapo, Valparaiso, Viña del Mar and Talca. In addition, more than ten presentations on the Bio-Engineering field to high school students in Santiago and Viña del Mar (150 attendees in total). Two lectures in “Feria Científica – UAI” to the last grade students from 50 high school institutions (800 attendees in total)

Patenting of a genetically modified bacteria by silencing of the gene cpoX, which brings more efficiency to the biodegradation of chloroaromatic polluting compounds in high concentrations. One patenting process for use of PGPR mixtures improving crop yields and stress responses is being initiated through the fast track protocol in USA. Along with Rosanna Ginocchio, a patent protecting use of microbiologized plants in phytostabilization procedures will be submitted soon.
