Centre for Biodiversity Genomics Science Seminar Series: Teresita Porter, PhD

Date and Time


Centre for Biodiversity Genomics Visualization Theatre (Room 1009)


The Centre for Biodiversity Genomics (CBG) Science Seminar Series is intended to provide a forum for the CBG researchers to present their work and to share new findings and ideas with their colleagues. We also encourage our visiting scientists and collaborators from different U of G departments to participate and present in this seminar series. We believe that this initiative will foster collaboration within CBG and with a wider community of researchers interested in biodiversity genomics. The seminars will be held in the CBG Visualization Theatre (Room 1009) every second Friday, 11:30-12:30 pm, starting January 31, 2020.

The first series speaker is Teresita Porter, PhD. She is a Research Scientist with the Great Lakes Forestry Centre and a Visiting Research Scientist with the Centre for Biodiversity Genomics, University of Guelph. Teresita’s research background is in ecology and evolution, mycology, and bioinformatics. Her current work focuses on using genomics methods to monitor water quality, soil health, and sustainability from environmental DNA. Teresita has a special interest in how methodological bias affects the analysis of biodiversity and biomonitoring data. Her seminar is entitled Metagenomics-Based Ecosystem Biomonitoring (Ecobiomics).
