The main research area is bioinformatics applied to animal genomics. Recent past research involved the application of genomics to map key regions of the European sea bass genome that regulate growth related traits, and to understand their function and evolution. It entailed to detect and characterise quantitative trait loci and their underlying causal genes that contribute to the variation in fish growth performance.
Currently using the quantitative genetics and genomics to understand the responses to global change and genome evolution of Antarctic notothenioid fish. The approach involves high-throughput sequencing techniques such RNASeq to gain insight to transcriptomic responses to thermal and osmoregulatory challenges of Notothenia rossi.
Participated in several European research projects at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (Crete, Greece) and at CCMAR. Participated in nine research projects funded.
O CCMAR participou no Ocean Sampling Day initiative (OSD2018), uma iniciativa que associa cientistas de todo o mundo para recolherem amostras em ambientes marinhos distintos.
O CCMAR é um dos parceiros deste projeto que pretende preencher lacunas na recolha de dados da biodiversidade marinha através das ciências ómicas.
A Katerina irá fazer um estágio Erasmus sob a supervisão do nosso investigador Bruno Louro. Bem-vinda!
