- Taxonomy and phylogeny of bacteria. Description of new bacterial taxa and phylogenetic analysis of microorganisms by using 16S rRNA genes

- Environmental Microbiology

- Characterization of microbial diversity from extreme environments (alkaline environments or environments highly contaminated with heavy metal and radionuclides) based on cultivable and non-cultivable methods. Analysis of 16S/18S rRNA gene libraries generated by Next Generation Sequencing (ex:454 Pyrosequencing) and comparative bioinformatics analysis.
