We are interested in discovering genes, proteins and functional pathways which influence product quality in beef, pork and sheepmeat. We have published our research in high quality journals including Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Genetics, Journal of Animal Science and PLoS One. The lab is well-funded and collaborative (current collaborators include UCD, UCC, FBN Germany, USDA) with five active research projects, funded by European Union and Irish national funding programmes.
Research area of interest for MSCA IF application: Functional genomics of beef eating quality.
Ruth has supervised three PhD students to completion in this area, who have all submitted their theses within 4 years and published 4-5 papers from their work. She currently supervises the research activities of 4 PhD students and 2 postdoctoral scientists.
