Personal profile

Current Research Interests

Our group AlphaGenes focusses on the development and application of quantitative genetics methods and computational approaches for animal and plant breeding programs collected at the AlphaSuite. Currently our overarching research aim relates to the development of what we call Genomic Selection 2.0. We envisage that GS2.0 would be underpinned by huge quantities of sequence data generated at low cost and could enable several new ways of driving genetic improvement and biological insight.
