How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Introduction
I'm studying the convergent adaptation to myrmecophagy in placentals using comparative genomics to study the evolution of olfactory and taste receptor genes in those species and metagenomics to understand the role of the gut microbiome in the adaptation to this diet.

Description
  • The main goal of my PhD project is to understand the mechanisms underlying the convergent adaptation to myrmecophagy (ants and/or termites’ consumption) in placental mammals (aardvark, anteaters, armadillos, pangolins and aardwolves) by using comparative genomics and metagenomics approaches.

Ant-eating mammals represent a textbook example of convergent morphological evolution. Among them, anteaters and pangolins exhibit the most extreme convergent phenotypes with complete tooth loss, elongated skulls, protrusive tongues, and powerful claws to rip open ant and termite nests. Despite this remarkable convergence, comparative genomic analy...
Preprint
Long-read metagenomic sequencing enables the reconstruction of better-quality assemblies compared to short-read assemblies. Long-read assemblies are typically more contiguous and this is of interest to recover full bacterial genomes. Here, we propose a protocol to extract high molecular weight bacterial DNA from mammalian fecal samples for long-rea...
