Centro de Biologia Molecular e Ambiental

Centre of Molecular and Environmental Biology

CBMA organization reflects their scientific expertise and approaches towards different perspectives on biodiversity.

The study of living organisms and their interaction with the environment implies different scales of approach, from populations, communities, organisms, to a single cell and molecular events. The comprehensive understanding of biodiversity components and ecosystems relies on complementary expertise based on distinct tools and methodologies.
