Introduction
My research is focused on the reclassification of the entire bacterial domain based on the principles of the Biological Species Concept. I provide computational expertise to the analysis of genomic and metagenomic data to assist in the recognition and classification of bacterial species.

Article
Full-text available
Background: Metagenomes can be analysed using different approaches and tools. One of the most important distinctions is the way to perform taxonomic and functional assignment, choosing between the use of assembly algorithms or the direct analysis of raw sequence reads instead by homology searching, k-mer analysys, or detection of marker genes. Man...

Metagenomes can be analysed using different approaches and tools. One of the most important distinctions is the way to perform taxonomic and functional assignment, choosing between the usage of assemblies or the direct analysis of raw sequence reads instead. Many instances of each approach can be found in the literature, but to the best of our know...

Background Despite the important role that microorganisms play in environmental processes, the low percentage of cultured microbes (5%) has limited, until now, our knowledge of their ecological strategies. However, the development of high-throughput sequencing has generated a huge amount of genomic and metagenomic data without the need of culturing...
Article
Southern Iberian freshwater ecosystems located at the border between the European and African plates represent a tectonically complex region spanning several geological ages, from the uplifting of the Betic Mountains in the Serravalian-Tortonian periods to the present. This area has also been subjected to the influence of changing climate condition...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Although about half of the annual primary production of the planet occurs in the ocean and bacterial metabolism is involved in the chemical transformation of most elements, very little is known of marine microbial diversity. Most (90-99%) of these organisms cannot be retrieved as axenic cultures under standard laboratory conditions, and thus are no...
Conference Paper

Los peces primarios de agua dulce, cuya dispersión está limitada al interior de las cuencas de los ríos, se utilizan comúnmente con propósitos biogeográficos. El área del Estrecho de Gibraltar es una de las regiones biogeográficas más complejas durante el Cenozoico, debido a procesos tectónicos y climáticos que debieron afectar a las poblaciones de...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The taxonomy of the Spanish freshwater fishes was mainly precluded for the monumental work of Lozano Rey (1935). This work considered the same origin to the Iberian and the rest of European fish fauna. Differences in morphology many times were assigned to small local variations and Spanish populations were attributed taxonomically to subspecies of...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Primary freshwater fishes, whose dispersion is limited mainly to inside river basins, are commonly used with biogeographical purposes. The Gibraltar Strait area is one of the most complex biogeographical regions during the Cenozoic due to tectonical and climatic processes, which must severely affect to populations of organisms inhabiting this area....
Conference Paper

La Península Ibérica se caracteriza, desde un punto de vista ictiológico, por un alto número de endemismos (Machordom y Doadrio, 2001) como consecuencia, principalmente, de su aislamiento geográfico durante la mayor parte del Cenozoico. La taxonomía de los peces de agua dulce españoles fue excluida en su mayor parte en el enorme estudio realizado p...

The Iberian Peninsula is characterized from an ichthyological point of view for a high number of endemisms (Doadrio, 2001) as consequence, principally, of its geographical isolation during main of the Cenozoic. The taxonomy of the Spanis freshwater fishes was mainly precluded for the monumental work of Lozano Rey (1935). This work considered the sa...

La cuenca Mediterránea ha sido clasificada como uno de los 25 puntos calientes prioritarios para la conservación de la biodiversidad, presentando numerosas especies endémicas, muchas de ellas en peligro por pérdida de hábitat e introducción de especies exóticas. Dentro de la región mediterránea, la Península Ibérica ha constituido un refugio glacia...

Con objeto de deducir los efectos que han tenido las transgresiones marinas a lo largo del Plio-Pleistoceno en el Golfo de Cádiz, causados tanto por el último fenómeno glacial como por la acción de los Tsunamis ocurridos en esta área, se ha realizado un estudio filogeográfico de las especies del género Squalius que habitan en el sur de España.
