Biografie

My project aims to develop tools and applications to predict deleterious variation from livestock populations. I am specialized in identifying genomic variation that causes early lethality in livestock breeds and predicting the causal mutation from genomics and transcriptomics data.  Examples include genomic variation that causes fetal death (i.e. causing mummification in pig breeds) as well as mutations that cause embryonic lethality. Together, our project facilitates monitoring of deleterious mutations, avoiding at-risk matings and thereby improving production and animal welfare 

I have a background in Bioinformatics (BSc, and MSc), specialised in analysing and integrating different types of ~omics data (genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics), population genetics, and deleterious genetic variation. Moreover, I have extensive experience in comparative genomics, genome assembly and genome annotation.

Projecten

My project is part of the STW -Breed4Food partnership "From sequence to phenotype: detecting deleterious variation by prediction of functionality" consortium and we aim to identify and predict deleterious genetic variation in various livestock populations. We use the wealth of genomic data currently produced from the breeding industry to make direct predictions of deleterious variation and corresponding phenotypic consequences, mainly in commercial pig and chicken breeds. 

For more information you can visit the Breed4Food, WUR, and STW website.
