Martin Johnsson
Postdoc, Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics


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 quantitative traits and sequence data in pigs, and bone strenght in layer chickens.
