Teach Me in 10 – Microbial Epigenomics With Dr Pedro Oliveira

Video   Jul 02, 2020


In this instalment of Teach Me in 10, we're joined by Dr Pedro Oliveira, Senior Scientist at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, whose scientific interests center on the bioinformatics, comparative genomics and epigenomics of bacteria, particularly the interplay between methylation, gene flux and chromosome organization. In just 10 minutes, he teaches us about his use of third generation sequencing technologies to boost the field of epigenomics. 

Dr Oliveira's recent publications:

Chernobyl Fungus Eats Nuclear Radiation Via Radiosynthesis


A fungus growing near the Chernobyl site was thriving on nuclear radiation thanks to radiosynthesis, using melanin to convert gamma radiation into chemical energy. Scientists are exploring whether its radiation-absorbing properties could be used to protect astronauts in space.


Aerobic Microbial Life Persists in Oxic Marine Sediments As Old As 101.5 Million Years - Interviews


Scientists incubated ancient sediment samples to coax their microbes to grow. The results demonstrated that rather than being fossilized remains of life, the microbes in the sediment had survived, and were capable of growing and dividing.


Finding a Drug for COVID-19: We Don't Have Time To Start From Scratch


The Chanda Lab at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute worked very quickly to screen nearly 12,000 compounds – already tested in humans – to find a drug that can slow or stop SARS-CoV-2. The approach is likely the fastest path to a treatment for COVID-19.
