Center for Quantitative Genetics and Genomics (QGG) is an international research center with more than 70 employees and visiting researchers from over 20 nations.
At QGG we do basic and applied research within quantitative genetics and genomics. More specifically, we work with the development of statistical models for animal and plant breeding, studies of the genetic foundation for various traits and diseases, and the management of genetic resources. Our focus is animals and plants, but we are increasingly working with human genetics and model organisms. Our research is characterised by a very close cooperation with research and industrial partners all over the world.
In the menu to the left or below, you can read more about who we are, what we do, and on which species we focus.
If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.
