Bacharel in Biomedical Informatics at University of São Paulo (2007), Master in Genetics at University of São Paulo (2009) and PhD in Genetics at Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo (2012). PostDoc at Ribeirão Preto Medical School with a research internship at the Broad Institute - MIT/Harvard (2014). I have experience in Bioinformatics and Genetics focusing in Genetics and Molecular Biology of Microorganisms acting mainly in fungal genomics and transcriptional analysis and metagenomics analysis. Since 2014, I am a bioinformatics researcher at Brazilian Science and Technology Bioethanol Laboratory (CTBE/CNPEM). (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
In the last decades, the incidence of fungal infections has increased, mainly due to the increased number of immunocompromised patients, and dermatophytosis are one of the most common fungal infections, affecting both immunocompromised as healthy individuals. The dermatophyte Trichophyton rubrum is the most frequent clinical isolate in cases humans skin and nail infections. Despite the ...
The dermatophyte Trichophyton rubrum is a filamentous anthropophilic fungus that became the most common agent isolated in cases of human dermatophytoses. Recently, this fungus has been the cause of deep and widespread infections in immunocompromised patients. There are several drugs available to control fungal infections, but these treatments have several limitations such as few targets...
Dermatophytes are a phylogenetically related group of filamentous fungi able to invade and colonize keratinized tissues in human and animals. These species can be classified as geophilic, zoophilic and anthropophilic, based on their preferable niches, such as soil, animals and humans, respectively. The genome of seven dermatophytes species was recently sequenced and comparative analysis...
