Welcome to the Serão Genomics Lab
In the Serão Genomics Lab we are interested in creating a better world by training students and doing research on a variety of novel projects!
Our research is focused on quantitative genetics and genomics of complex traits, such as disease/stress response and fertility in livestock animals; QTL mapping; Genomic prediction/selection; Gene expression analysis; Statistical methods for genomic analyses; Big Data; Modeling of immune response, and infectious diseases; Principles of Experimentation.
