Edinburgh Genomics to Deploy Illumina’s NovaSeq platform

Scientists in Scotland have gained access to the most up-to-date gene sequencing technology, aiding research to better understand human and animal diseases. The technology – acquired by the University of Edinburgh – will enable studies into the genetics of virtually any species, including bacteria and viruses as well as plants. Experts at the University’s Edinburgh Genomics facility say the new...

Award winning Scottish research could pave the way for ‘low-emission cattle’

A Scottish study that potentially paves the way for the breeding of low-emission livestock has won the prestigious PLOS Genetics R esearch P rice for 2017. The research, the result of a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, Scotland’s Rural College and the University of Aberdeen, identified a genetic link between host animals, the microbiome within their digestive tract and the...
