We are a lab of quantitative genetics and genomics, primarily in livestock animals. We seek to understand why some cows produce more milk than others, or why some people are more prone to certain diseases than others, and questions of that nature. By doing that, we hope to be able to understand the biological processes underlying complex quantitative trait variation and eventually breed better animals. We tackle these questions using a variety of approaches, including genetics, genomics, statistics, and bioinformatics.
