Work and Research

My research specialty is geared towards understanding and applying genomic studies and analysis to develop products to ensure food security and safety. I am investigating and analyzing the genomics of both goats and Haemonchus contortus for selection of helminth resistance breed of goats. I am using molecular techniques to identify resistance so as to understand their epidemiology of the parasite in this changing climatic conditions. Whereas goats are being genotyped using the Single Nucleotide Polymorphism to carry out association studies for host resistance against H. contortus. Therefore my knowledge and skills are articulated towards improving small ruminant productivity in Nigeria.
