Biography Anna Kristina Sonesson

I work with the design of breeding schemes, including marker-assisted and genomic selection schemes, and with QTL mapping. I also work with the management of genetic variation, i.e. managing inbreeding, both at the level of relationship and at the genomic level. Computer simulation is the basic method used along with analysis of real data. Education: MSc Animal Science, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (1996), PhD Animal Breeding and Genetics, Wageningen University (2002).
