Janez

Research Fellow

My research focuses on the implementation of genomic selection and new technologies in livestock and plant breeding programs. I received my PhD from the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia where I worked on the evaluation of longevity and lifetime milk production breeding values in dairy cattle populations reared in small herds. During that time I also developed a model for the estimation of daily milk yields that was successfully implemented in a milk recording scheme. Recently, at the Roslin Institute I studied the effect of genome editing in livestock breeding programs using simulations and compared different genotyping strategies in cattle breeding programs to improve the accuracy of estimated breeding values. I am currently working on different strategies to improve accuracy of estimated breeding values using whole genome sequence data and a system for discovery of causative variants.
