Genes and athletic performance in thoroughbred horses
Equinome, a leading equine genomics company, has announced the publication of four scientific papers by Equinome and University College Dublin researchers which describe significant advances in the understanding of the genes that contribute to athletic performance in Thoroughbred horses. These include a new and enhanced validation of The Equinome Speed Gene Test, the identification of previously unknown genomic regions crucial to Thoroughbred performance and the differing responses of key metabolic genes to exercise in racehorses. Equinome, a University College Dublin spin-out company co-founded in 2009 by Emmeline Hill, Ph.D., and Jim Bolger, Ph.D., is headquartered in NovaUCD, the University’s Innovation and Technology Transfer Centre.
