Martin Johnsson
Postdoc, Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics, and The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh.


My research interests concern the genetic basis of quantitative traits, and ways to integrate different kinds of genomic data in animal genetics, working especially with pigs and chickens. I am currently working on causative gene identification and deleterious load in pigs. My postdoc is financed by a mobility grant from the Swedish research council Formas. I am stationed at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh until 2019.
