Scientific Background: I work as a deputy head in the Department of Omic Analyses at National Veterinary Research Institute as a research and technical specialist and I am responsible for the high throughput sequencing lab. My major task is the implementation of high throughput sequencing of animal and food-borne pathogens (e.g. Salmonella, E.coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, Enterococcus, SARS-CoV-2, AIV). This research is used in epidemiological investigations, phylogenetic analyses, and characteristics of bacterial and viral species. I work with different sequencing platforms (Illumina and Oxford Nanopore technologies) using different applications: whole genome sequencing, targeted sequencing, metagenomic and metataxonomic of bacteria (analysis of 16S rRNA gene) in environmental samples. I participate in several projects, e.g. from One Health consortium (CARE, Full-Force). My scientific focus area is the research of animal welfare and antibiotic resistance of poultry in different farming systems and backyard holdings.
