Evolutionary Genetics - EG
Subgroup Leader of Microbial Genomics and Bioinformatics

Teresa Nogueira


Bacterial genomics and metagenomics Evolution Antibiotic resistance Bacterial virulence Bioinformatics Veterinary and animal health

I received a PhD in Physiology and Genetics of Microorganisms (Specialisation in Genes, Genomes and Cells) from the University Paris-Sud in France in 2001. I currently lead the Microbial Genomics and Bioinformatics Subgroup of cE3c. I am a researcher at INIAV - Instituto Nacional de Investigação Agrária e Veterinária.

My research focuses on understanding the evolutionary dynamics of bacterial genomes and human, animal and environmental microbiomes, the co-evolution of antibiotic resistance and bacterial virulence, horizontal gene transfer, the interconnection of microorganisms and genetic traits between agricultural, terrestrial, aquatic, animal and anthropogenic microbiomes, and the transmission of bacterial pathogens of foodborne diseases.

I have been involved for many years in studying the antibiotic resistance profile of microbial communities in food-producing aquatic and animal environments as part of the One Health concept and using large-scale genomic and metagenomic analyses of microbiomes.

I also teach bioinformatics in PhD programmes and engage in outreach and science communication activities to promote scientific literacy in biological evolution. In this context, I am a board member of the scientific association EvoKE (Evolutionary Knowledge for Everybody) deeply involved in promoting public understanding and acceptance of evolution.
