Adaptation Molecular evolution Freshwater fish Integrative biology Circadian rhythm

I graduated in Biochemistry from the University of Lisbon in 2016 and I am currently a master student in Evolutionary and Developmental Biology. I am working on the project “Circadian system in Iberian freshwater fish: characterization and evolutionary perspective”, under the supervision of Manuela Coelho at the Evolutionary Genetics group of cE3c. My project aims to (i) characterize structurally and functionally circadian-related gene families in species of genus Squalius using a molecular and biochemical approach; (ii) understand the mechanisms driving the molecular evolution in each gene family and; (iii) provide some hints on adaptation of circadian rhythms of these species under a climate change scenario.
