Speakers

Olga Dudchenko
Assistant Professor
"3D Genome Architecture Persists in a 52,000-Year-Old Woolly Mammoth Skin Sample" (Workshop Title: "DNA Zoo")
Ben Hayes
Centre Director
Genetics and genomics for livestock and crop breeding
Robert Henry
Professor
Application of genomics to capturing biodiversity for agriculture with special emphasis on Australian plant species.
Jennifer Meadows
Senior Research Scientist
The long-term research goals of Jennifer Meadow's research group are to identify the genes and molecular variants that underpin traits of importance to both the health and well-being of companion animals. Paired with this is a comparative genetics aspect, where through international collaborative efforts, research findings are translated to aid human patients with orthologous disease sets.
Jennie Pryce
Professor/Research Director
Jennie’s main research interests are genetic improvement of traits associated with health, welfare and environmental impact in dairy cows.
Camilla Whittington
Senior Lecturer
The research of the Whittington Lab is focused on evolutionary and integrative zoology, and aims to understand the evolution of complex traits. They are especially interested in understanding the biology and evolution of pregnancy and the placenta.
Josquin Tibbits
Research Leader
Crop genetic improvement and accelerating crop varietal development through innovative approaches that more seamlessly integrate research, pre-breeding and breeding.
Xun Xu
Director
Sequencing technologies, single-cell sequencing, stereo-seq technologies and applications of sequencing technologies in precision medicine and biodiversity.
