Beyond genomic selection, managing inbreeding and diversity in the genomic era
Dr. Christian Maltecca is an associate professor of Quantitative Genetics and Genomics at the Animal Science Department of North Carolina State University and is part of the Genetics program and the Center for Comparative Medicine (CMI) of the same institution. Dr. Maltecca's research is focused on the genomic improvement of economically relevant traits in livestock. His main interests are in the area of genomic prediction and genome-wide association for functional traits. Additional research in his group is focused on the impact of genomic selection on long-term variation and fitness. In his research, he typically makes use of a combination of simulated data, large cross-sectional field data, as well as designed experiments.
