Genetics and Genomics

One of the key strengths of the EBRC is provided by the expertise retained by the consortium in the field of genetics.

Across the EBRC partners and via extensive collaborative teams, genome-wide scale analysis of genetic variation is leading to development of theoretical and statistical frameworks for analysis of very large datasets.

Such research is leading to development of predictive biology that can link genetic and epigenetic variation with phenotype thus creating the basis for overcoming many of the intellectual and practical challenges in both livestock production (sustainable breeding programmes and new breeding tools) and animal and human health.
