Research areas

Domestic animals provide a valuable resource for studying the genetics and genomics of phenotypic variation in quantitative traits as well as for the identification of mutations underpinning hereditary defects. Current research interests are

-  Mapping of quantitative trait loci that affect health and production traits in farm animals

-  Identification of disease-causing mutations and functional studies of proteins involved in hereditary disorders

-  Discovery and functional characterization of microRNA in the farm animal genomes

-  Expression of microRNA and mRNA in muscles in relation to growth and differentiation, muscle exercise and phenotypic traits

-  Characterization of genomic structural variation
