Structural Functional Genomics, Genetics and Genomics
|Name||Job Title||Research Theme|
|Alan Archibald||Personal Chair of Mammalian Molecular Genetics|
Understanding the genetic control of complex traits, including responses to infectious disease, in farmed animals, primarily pigs and cattle.
|Emily Clark||Chancellors Fellow|
My main research interests focus on transcriptomics and genomics in livestock in both production animals and indigenous African breeds. I am particularly interested in functional annotation and the transcriptional control of complex traits.
|Ross Houston||Personal Chair of Aquaculture Genetics|
Our research group focus on understanding the genetic basis of disease resistance in aquaculture species, and developing methods of selective breeding for improved resistance.
|James Prendergast||Senior Research Fellow|
|Jacqueline Smith||Career Track Fellow|
Genomics of Avian Viral Infections
|Mick Watson||Personal Chair of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology|
I am interested in what large datasets tell us about biological function, and how we can correlate patterns in big data with phenotypes of interest in farm animal health, disease and productivity.
