Macqueen Research Group – The Roslin Institute

The Macqueen group addresses basic and applied research problems at the interface of genome biology, physiology, and evolution, focusing primarily on aquatic species.

MacQueen Lab

The Macqueen group tackles fundamental and applied research problems at the intersection of genome biology, physiology and evolution, working mainly on aquatic species. Using diverse genomic methodologies, their current work ranges from generating and annotating new genome assemblies, to using genomics to understand pathogen transmission, and single cell transcriptomics to dissect immune and health traits. Much of their work targets commercial species, and they collaborate with industry to harness genomics towards improvements in the sustainability of the aquaculture sector. They are also interested in understanding the impacts of genome duplication events that have occurred frequently during eukaryotic evolution, using salmonid fish as a study system.
