Professional Profile

Prof. Doc. Nelson Toro is associate professor of the Biology Department at Universidad del Valle.
After studying biology in Universidad del Valle at Cali, he graduated in 1986. Dr. Toro developed his Master's and Doctorate studies at the Institute for Molecular Biology of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB, Belgium), where he worked on the expression and regulation of genes in plants. Between 1996 and 1997, he was an associate researcher of the National Agricultural Biotechnology program at Corpoica, Tibaitatá, Colombia. Since 1998, Doc. Toro has participated as Undergraduate and Graduate professor as well as well as a researcher in genetics and molecular biology at the Biology Department of the Universidad del Valle. Professor Toro is currently the research group leader “Eco-genetics and Molecular Biology Studies” endorsed by the Colombian Science minister (A category).

 

Projects in Process

Colombian Pacific Coast Mangrove Ecogenetics. Phase I: Genetic differentiation between and within mangrove genera of the Colombian Pacific Coast (1999 - Present)

 

Teaching Interests

Professor Toro has his lines of research in Molecular Biology applied to genetic improvement in plants, as well as using Biotechnology to conservation biology. In addition, he is interested in studies of genetic variability of tropical wild species through the use of molecular markers, and studies of intraspecific molecular differentiation of tropical species in different geographic areas, as well as ecogenetics, and the effects of global warming on the genetic variation of tropical ecosystems and species.
