Professor Albert Tenesa

Group Leader


Albert Tenesa studied agricultural engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia before coming to Edinburgh to study an MSc in Quantitative Genetics and Genome Analysis. He then carried out his PhD in quantitative genetics under the supervision of Peter Visscher and Sara Knott at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Edinburgh. After a postdoc with Professor Malcolm Dunlop he became a group leader at the Roslin Institute (where he holds a joint appointment). Albert’s research at the MRC-Human Genetics Unit is aimed to understand how genetic variation contributes to phenotypic variation of complex traits in humans.
