María Recuerda

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a postdoctoral research assistant working with Leonardo Campagna’s group in Biodiversity Studies. I study the genome of capuchino seedeaters to detect polymorphisms and structural variations related to differences in plumage coloration. I also conduct transcriptomics analysis to identify differentially expressed genes in patches with different coloration between species.
