Research Areas


Genetic disease resistance/susceptibility in farm animals
e.g.: ovine scrapie, ovine footrot, nematodes in sheep and chicken, maedi-visna in sheep

Molecular characterization of functional traits in farm animals
e.g. litter size and saisonality in sheep, horn status in sheep and goats, copper tolerance in sheep

Identification of causal variants for inherited disorders in domestic animals e.g. hypopigmentation Syndrome in sheep, polledness intersexuality syndrome in goats
