Dr 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.

Professor Appolinaire Djikeng Director - Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health
  • Livestock comparative genomics, functional genomics and metagenomics.
  • Tropical livestock adaptation, resilience and productivity
  • Tropical agriculture and sustainable development
Dr Andy Law Group Leader/Senior Research Fellow

The development of simple-to-use systems for handling and reformatting data for genetic analyses.

Dr Jeffrey Schoenebeck Chancellors Fellow

Genomics of Avian Viral Infections

Dr Douglas Vernimmen Chancellors Fellow/Research Fellow

Our collaborative research with Prof K Kranc is to address the precise functions of epigenetic regulators in myeloid leukaemia using in vitro, ex-vivo and in vivo models. Together with additional screening in patients for mutations in this gene, this research will enable us to develop new approaches to treat leukaemia.
