Computational Biology and Population Genomics - Cobig2

Ana Cristina Magalhães Vieira

PhD Student

Ana Vieira is conducting a Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology at the University of Lisbon since 2013 within the CoBiG2 (Computational Biology & Population Genomics Group) of cE3c. She is conducting the project "Unraveling the genomics of adaptation of Colletotrichum kahawae to Coffea arabica", under the supervision of Professor Octávio S. Paulo (cE3c, University of Lisbon) and Doctor Dora Batista (cE3c & IICT/BIOTROP, CIFC - Centro de Investigação das Ferrugens do Cafeeiro).  Her research project is currently focused on: i) unveil the genomic mechanisms underlying the adaptations and pathogenicity of C. kahawae to C. arabica; ii) unveil how and how fast this pathogen emerge from the most close species; iii) develop a set of molecular markers that enable the identification and monitoring of the spread and pathogenic potential of C. kahawae; iv) evaluate the differences on the aggressiveness patterns  of several isolates of C. kahawae.
