I​n order to support and strengthen the implementation of national and international regulations on commercialization and trade of marine species the BIOMOL laboratory has different projects that include morphological and genetic identification of species.
​In the BIOMOL laboratory we have different projects focused on population genetics of endangered species mainly of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) as well as teleost fish of commercial importance.
​A​t the BIOMOL laboratory we understand that scientists must unveil the consequences of disease over animal populations as part of an effective and cohesive conservation strategy. The epidemiology studies of the BIOMOL laboratory are focused on parasite-host relationships in elasmobranchs (sharks and rays).
I​n collaboration with researchers from areas of social sciences, artists of 3D modeling, and photographers, the BIOMOL laboratory has projects that apply an interdisciplinary approach to create products that aid us in the conservation of endangered marine species.
