Talk Title:  Integration of Plant and Animal Breeding Strategies


Prof. John Hickey holds the Chair of Animal Breeding at The Roslin Institute which is part of The Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. His area of research spans animal breeding, plant breeding, with some spill over into human genetics. In particular, he seeks to develop computational methods to generate and analyse huge data sets with whole genome sequence information as well as methods and breeding strategies that use genomic information to increase rates of genetic progress. In recent years his research group have worked on breeding projects in pigs, chickens, cattle, groundnut, forest trees, strawberry, maize, wheat and other species. Software and algorithms developed by John Hickey and colleagues underpin aspects of several of the largest breeding programs globally.
