AlphaGenes


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.

  • New preprint: Using high-throughput phenotypes to enable genomic selection by inferring genotypes

    We recently published a preprint for how to use high-throughput phenotypes to infer an individuals genotype and enable genomic selection. Using genomic selection is key for increasing genetic gain in breeding programs by more accurately evaluating which individuals to select. However genotyping is expensive. To help make genomic selection more cost effective, AlphaGenes has been researching different ways to decrease genotyping...
