Short Bio

Alejandro H. WencesI was born in 1991 in Mexico City which, actually, in Mexico is not called Mexico City but Distrito Federal and is the capital. I lived there until I was 18 when I moved to Cuernavaca, a relatively small city, where I entered the undergraduate program in Genomic Sciences at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. Presently I am coursing the fourth and last year of the program, which basically consists of developing a research project as a full time activity; I am doing this at Michael Schatz's lab in Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY.
