Our group AlphaGenes focusses on the development and application of quantitative genetics methods and computational approaches for animal and plant breeding programs and human genetics. Currently our overarching research aim relates to the development of what we call “Genomic Selection 2.0“. We envisage that GS2.0 would be underpinned by huge quantities of sequence data generated at low cost and could enable several new ways of driving genetic improvement and biological insight. Specifically we are developing the algorithms, software and strategies for generating and analysing data on this scale and new breeding program designs to derive breeding benefit.

  • The Kenya visit

    In the start June, Jon went to Kenya to discuss his work with our collaborators at ICRISAT (Nairobi), to collect a phenotypic and genotypic dataset for his future PhD work on orphan crop Finger millet, and to gain practical experience in the field as a plant breeder. He spent 6 weeks in Busia, a small...
