Biography Marie Lillehammer

I work as a post doc, where I study how genomic selection can be implemented in the breeding programmes for salmon, pig and dairy cattle. The project is in collaboration with the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) and the breeding organisations Aqua Gen, Norsvin and Geno. I hold a PhD in animal breeding and genetics from UMB and I have also worked as a researcher at Statistics Norway.
