Abdulfatai Tijjani

I am a member of ILRI’s Livestock Genetics program as a Post-Doctoral Fellow. I am working on bioinformatics data analysis of African indigenous livestock genomes and transcriptomes to identify genomic regions underlying adaptation/resilience and productivity traits, in support of breeding programs. Also, I am supporting bioinformatics capacity building activities including supervision of postgraduate students at ILRI - Kenya, ILRI – Ethiopia, CTLGH – the United Kingdom and training of research partners from within Africa.
