Genes, Populations and Disease

ObjectivesResearchersProjectsPublications

Main Researcher: Licínio Manco

The main research focus of Genes, Populations and Diseases group is the assessment of genetic variation across populations, including both normal and disease phenotypes.

The group activity covers important topics in human genetics, including:

  1. genetic basis of complex diseases, including obesity;
  2. molecular basis of haematological conditions, namely red cell enzyme deficiencies, HbF production in adults and venous thrombosis susceptibility.
  3. effect of diseases (such as malaria) on modern patterns of genetic variation;
  4. population genetics studies using Y-chromosome and autosomal variants.

Research interests:

  • Genetic basis of human variation, in both normal and disease phenotypes;
  • Genetic basis of complex diseases, including obesity and haematological conditions;
  • Molecular basis of human genetic diseases, with a particular focus on red cell enzyme deficiencies;
  • Population genetic studies using common genetic variation in autosomal and Y-chromosome loci.

 

Ongoing Projects:

P1: Genetic and environmental determinants of healthy ageing and longevity.

P2: Genetic basis of haematological conditions.

– Genetics of venous thrombosis (VT) risk.

– Fetal haemoglobin (HbF) gene regulation.

P3: Study of genetic variants associated with common and morbid obesity.

P4: Y-chromosome variation in Portugal: relationships with historical or demographic events

and patrilineal surnames.

P5: Ancient DNA analyses from human skeletal remains.

Research interests

I am currently interested on the study of the genetic basis of obesity, particularly the following lines:

  • Identify new genetic variants associated with the susceptibility risk to develop an obese phenotype.
  • Identify mutations in the MC4R and LEPR genes associated with monogenic obesity.
  • Examine the methylation levels of several CpG sites.

Overall, I am interested in identifying a genetic profile to predict the obesity susceptibility risk.

PhD Project:

O presente projeto pretende estudar a evolução dos espaços e rituais funerários praticados na vila fortificada de Valença desde a sua fundação medieval até ao século XIX, explorando os resultados dos trabalhos arqueológicos aí realizados nos últimos 15 anos.
Pretende-se, por um lado, clarificar a organização espacial das áreas sepulcrais associadas a cada edifício religioso, atendendo às identidades individuais, sociais e religiosas, balizando a cronologia das fases de ocupação. Por outro lado, o estudo paleoantropológico das amostras ósseas exumadas proporcionará dados sobre o modo de vida destas populações, sobre a evolução demográfica e a mobilidade da população. Procurar-se-á, ainda, correlacionar o uso funerário dos espaços com a evolução urbanística da fortificação, no sentido de identificar eventuais condicionalismos e pressões sobre os espaços funerários ao longo dos tempos e a influência nas suas organizações. Pretende-se, assim, recriar toda uma dinâmica urbanística, demográfica, funerária e de vivências de um meio militarizado.

The main objective of my visit was to analyze markers of occupational stress in human bones from Mesolithic and Neolithic periods. For that purpose I got trained in the Coimbra Method to register entheseal changes and I have also learned new methods such as how to get periosteal mouldings of diaphyses to access geometric properties of long bones and to measure the rotational efficiency of the radius and humerus.

Research interests:
My research interests focus on occupational disease and injury in past populations, predominantly in terms of their identification, but also their impact on the individual and the societies in which they lived.
This research focus stems from my studies of entheseal changes, widely used to study occupation in past societies. I continue to work on recording methods and the interpretation of data for these. I am also the leader of the working group on methodology set up after the Workshop on MSM, Coimbra 2009.

 

Ongoing Projects:
2012 – now. Postdoctoral research funding: Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) SFRH/BPD/82559/2011. Title. Identifying occupation: a test using identified skeletal collections.

Closed Projects:

Research interests:

The study of the human past is my broadest professional interest. Specifically, I focus on the genomics of ancient human populations by directly accessing their DNA. The main questions I research about are migrations, population affinities, and trait selection, with an interest in the Neolithic and Bronze population movements in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean islands. Methodological experimentation, protocols development, and optimization of existing ones for ancient DNA is also a topic I work on extensively.

Research interests

I am currently interested on the study of the genetic basis of obesity, particularly the following lines:

  • Identify new genetic variants associated with the susceptibility risk to develop an obese phenotype.
  • Identify mutations in the MC4R and LEPR genes associated with monogenic obesity.
  • Examine the methylation levels of several CpG sites.

Overall, I am interested in identifying a genetic profile to predict the obesity susceptibility risk.

I have a special interest in Human Bioarchaoelogy, Forensic Anthropology and Chemical Anthropology with a special focus on ancient cremations and burned bones. I am currently coordinating the HOT Project. The main objectives are to improve our understanding of heat-induced changes to bone and teeth and to improve analytical methods that are specific to burned skeletal remains.
