Genetics and Genomics
Understanding complex animal systems and developing improved predictive models.
The Division of Genetics and Genomics is concerned with understanding complex animal systems and developing improved predictive models.
Our aim is to advance the understanding of complex animal systems through the application of numerical/computational approaches in analysis, interpretation and modelling from the level of DNA to whole organisms and populations.
We focus on how genes and genomes work in order to understand the basic biology of complex traits and improve the models we use to inform decisions in livestock production, human health and animal welfare. Thus, we aim to predict from sequence to consequence.
