Antonio Rodríguez-García  – Head of Transciptomics and Bioinformatics

Antonio has been an Investigator at INBIOTEC since 2003 and an Associate Professor of Microbiology at the Universidad de León since 2007. Antonio has a strong scientific background in the molecular biology and biotechnology of Streptomyces bacteria.

His research work has been mainly focused on the regulation of antibiotic biosynthesis (phosphate and carbon regulation, global regulators, sRNA), with application of ‘omics techniques, such as microarrays, next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics.



Rosario Pérez-Redondo – Head of Genomics

Rosario is in charge of the Genomics Unit at INBIOTEC. She has gained a wealth of experience in expression studies (microarrays, RT-qPCR), DNA sequencing, genome annotation, and genetic engineering techniques. Her research experience focusses on the transcriptional regulation of the secondary metabolism in Streptomyces

Alberto Sola-Landa – Head of Energy and Environment Area

Alberto started his career at INBIOTEC in 2000, and his work has been mainly focused on the molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of secondary metabolism in Actinobacteria. He has a wide experience in Microbiology and Molecular Biology, including genetic engineering, DNA sequencing, genome annotation, protein expression and purification and protein-DNA interaction.

Irene Santamarta

Irene has been part of the scientific staff at INBIOTEC since 2002, specialising in project development, with qualified training in the Proteomics Service. Irene develops specific functions such as protein purification, preparation of protein solutions and proteomes, proteome resolution and image analysis for differential proteomics. Her research activity has been mainly focused on Streptomyces secondary metabolism.

Carlos Barreiro – Scientific Director of INBIOTEC

Carlos has been a researcher at INBIOTEC since 2000. Formerly the Head of the Proteomics Unit and Industrial Processes Area, currently, he is the Scientific Director of the Institute. Since 2014 he has been the Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Microbiology (University of León, Spain). He is also the Coordinator of the European ERA-IB project ProWood. His research is mainly focused on Proteomics of high value compounds production such as immunosuppressants (Streptomyces tsukubaensis), steroids (Mycobacterium), penicillin (Penicillium chrysogenum) and amino acids or dicarboxylic acids (Corynebacterium glutamicum).
