A new associate editor is joining G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics. We’re excited to welcome Emily Clark to the editorial team.
Emily Clark is a research group leader at the Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, in Scotland. Her research group provides highly annotated genomes for farmed animals as resources to inform genome editing, genomic selection, and fundamental biology. She has a particular interest in how the genome is expressed and regulated across tissues and developmental stages and in different populations of sheep and goats. Using this information she is working towards improving the link between genotype and phenotype in these species, in both tropical and temperate regions of the globe. Recently, she led a white paper describing the next decade of research priorities for the global Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes Consortium (FAANG). She is also co-coordinator of the EuroFAANG Research Infrastructure project which aims to provide access to sustainable genomic resources for farmed animal genotype and phenotype research across Europe.
