Our group has an important experience to carry out microbial diagnostics from diseased fish, and to characterize the bacterial pathogenic microorganisms detected. Other recent research item is the study about the intestinal microbiota of different farmed fish, and the influence that different factors exert on it.

Host-Pathogen interaction: The objetive of our research is to study the interactions between fish pathogen and host. The main aspects studied are the characterization of different virulent strategies of pathogenic microorganisms such as Photobacterium damselae subsp piscida and Vibrio harveyi.

Prevention and biocontrol: The scope of this research is the design of prophylactic strategies to control main pathogenic microorganisms affecting farmed fish, such as gilthead seabream and Senegalese sole. Other item is to isolate and to characterize different microorganisms from the of vaccines from the virulent strategies showed by the pathogenic microorganisms, and the use algae as immunostimulants.
