Lei Wang: Statistical modelling incorporating linkage disequilibrium in quantitative genomics

PhD defence, Friday 14 November 2014. Lei Wang.

Lei Wang

During her studies Lei Wang investigated the pattern of linkage disequilibrium on both genome-wide and local scale in pig populations. She also exploited statistical models incorporating linkage disequilibrium information for improving prediction accuracy and mapping precision.

The new research findings contribute to the understanding the impact of linkage disequilibrium on genomic prediction and gene mapping.

The PhD degree was completed at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Faculty of Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé is prepared by the PhD student.
