With the appointment of two new professors, the Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG) is strengthening its position as one of the world’s leading centers for research in plant, animal, and human genetics and genomic selection.
Innovation Fund Denmark has invested close to 15 million DKK in a new research project led by VikingGenetics. Researchers from Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG) participate in the project with knowledge and resources within feed efficiency and genetics.
Researchers from Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG) are participating in a new project that aims to develop more drought resistant crops that will prevent farmers’ economic loss.
In connection with the formation of the new Faculty of Technical Sciences, the Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG), which has previously been part of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, will be reclassified as a department-like centre.
New research finds that genomic selection is highly efficient in the improvement of barley and wheat.
A study of fruit flies has given researchers from Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics at Aarhus University and their collaboration partners at Aalborg University new knowledge on how gene mapping also can be used to predict the response on a given treatment, and with it the possibility of personalised medicine.
Senior researcher at QGG, Peter Løvendahl, is the leading author of a scientific article which concludes that with the aid of low-cost, high-capacity recording methods, dairy cattle farmers can reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that their cows burp, while at the same time improving the animals’ feed efficiency.
Combing a cow’s own genetics with strategies that target changes in her rumen flora may be able to reduce methane emissions more effectively than by only selecting for low methane-emitting cows.
The research project DairyCross, which recently received a large grant from GUDP, has a clear objective of increasing the percentage of Danish crossbred cows from 10 to 50 percent in 2025. (External article in Danish)
A new research project will be studying the genetic basis of why individuals with the same diagnosis respond differently to the same medicine. The research results can contribute to personalised medicine in the future, based on our unique genetic profile. Medicine with more effect and less side effects.
