Owen

PhD Student

My research interests centre on driving genetic gain and efficiency in animal & plant breeding programmes. During my MSc in Quantitative Genetics and Genome Analysis, I was trained in population and quantitative genetics methodology, as well as gaining exposure to novel genomic technologies and evaluation techniques. My thesis applied linear animal models to a large human pedigree to explore the impact of Indirect Genetic Effects (IGE) between marital partners on post-reproductive lifespan. Having spent a short time working with industry-leading commercial agriculture companies, my PhD at the Roslin Institute focuses on demonstrating and exploiting the synergies between crop and livestock genetics to maximise progress in key traits of agriculture.
