Online symposium in honour of Professor John A. Woolliams

28 Jan 2021   Virtual, ,

Professor John A. Woolliams is retiring after 43 years of a distinguished career at various incarnations of today’s Roslin Institute.  Over this period, John has been a recognised international leader in the science of quantitative genetics and its application to animal breeding.  He has made significant contributions in several key areas, including the development of the quantitative genetic theory that underlies key principles of modern breeding programs; applied research to solve practical problems in breeding programs of livestock, companion animals and conifers; and notably, the training and mentoring of numerous students and scientists, many of whom are now leaders in the field.  Lastly, he has always been a true gentleman, patient and compassionate colleague and mentor, yet carefully direct when needed.

To honour John’s contributions to quantitative genetics and animal breeding, an online symposium will take place on 28th January.
