Dr. López-Arredondo is a Biochemical Engineer with a PhD specialized in Plant Biotechnology
by the National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity (Langebio-Cinvestav) in Mexico.
Dr. López-Arredondo was the Scientific Director of the company StelaGenomics Inc from
2012 to 2018 and joined IGCAST and the Texas Tech University Plant and Soil Science
Department in October, 2018.
My current research interests include the genetic improvement of crops and the development
of new agricultural technologies by taking advantage of the genetic diversity in microalgae,
using high-throughput screening, genetic engineering, genome mining and bioinformatic
approaches. Current projects include research on new compounds with herbicidal and
nematicidal effect, and the study of regulatory networks on lipid biosynthesis.
