Team Leader (Assistant Professor (Professor Auxiliar) at Lisbon University - Faculty of Sciences - Plant Biology Department)

We started this research group at the Faculty of Sciences - Lisbon University in 2007. We belong to the Centre of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Change (cE3c)  and "Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência" (associated group). This group is doing research mostly in evolutionary ecology of microorganisms, with a focus on bacteria, viruses and plasmids. Our approach involves both laboratory work and theoretical research. We study bacterial genetics, cooperation, competition, spite, and sex among bacterial cells, and their impact on pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance. 

Good News:
  1. March 2019: We published a review paper in Plasmid explaining how the interactions between plasmids and other mobile genetic elements affect plasmid transmission and persistence.
  2. Francisca Monteiro just arrived for her post-doc in our lab. Welcome!
  3. September 2018: We published a review paper in Plasmid explaining how antibiotic spread is affected by the interactions of plasmds with the chromosome and other plasmids.
  4. November 2017: Iolanda Domingues and João Gama published at Heredity (considered featured paper by editors of Heredity)
  5. November 2017: review paper about public goods and conflicts among bacteria. published at J. Bacteriology.
  6. September 2017: paper at Bulletin of Mathematical Biology with Erida Gjini and Maria Gaivão
