My research

I am interested in how heritable traits work and in finding causative genes, sequence variants and molecular pathways for quantitative traits. My current project deals with leveraging huge datasets from animal breeding companies for genomics.

Here are some blog posts about my work:

Paper: ”Removal of alleles by genome editing (RAGE) against deleterious load”

Paper: ”Sequence variation, evolutionary constraint, and selection at the CD163 gene in pigs”

Paper: ”Feralisation targets dfferent genomic loci to domestication in the chicken”

Paper: ”Mixed ancestry and admixture in Kauai’s feral chickens: invasion of domestic genes into ancient Red Junglefowl reservoirs”

From my halftime seminar

Paper: ”Heritable genome-wide variation of gene expression and promoter methylation between wild and domesticated chickens”

If you’re interested, see my publication list at Google Scholar.
