genes and development


The Genetics Programme contains around 90 staff, a figure that includes four fully integrated research groups from the Division of Plant Sciences University of Dundee. Our work focuses on the genetics of three groups of crops, potatoes, soft fruits and barley, associated with a number of research activities that incorporate work and/or information from model species. A dedicated bioinformatics capability underpins all of our activities and we maintain strong interactions with Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland who provide analytical expertise and statistical rigour to work throughout the programme. Genetics scientific management is currently based on five research themes that reflect our main areas of activity.

We are investigating the link between sequence variation, recombination and linkage disequilibrium and quantifying biological diversity of native and endangered species.
