CENTER FOR QUANTITATIVE GENETICS AND GENOMICS

Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG) is an international research center with more than 70 employees and visitors from more than 20 nations world wide.

AT QGG we do basic and applied research within quantitative genetics and genomics. We particularly work with the development of statistical models to be used in animal and plant breeding, studies of the genetic basis for different traits and diseases, and management of genetic resources. Our main focus is animals and plants, but we are increasingly working with human genetics and model organisms. Our research is characterised by a very close collaboration with researchers and industry partners all over the world.

In the menu to the left and below, you can read more about who we are what we do, and which species we work with.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us.
