My main research interests are: microbiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, microbial genomics and metagenomics, and horizontal gene transfer of genetic elements, containing bacterial virulence factors and antibiotic resistance traits. I am interested on understanding how bacteria interact by producing, and releasing to the environment, cooperative or virulent traits and the dynamics of the bacterial genomes (genomic mobility among plasmids and chromosomal within microbial populations bacterial DNA). My current research is focused on large genomic and metagenomic analysis of bacterial pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance traits of human and environmental samples worldwide.
