Welcome to the homepage of Molecular Population Genetics Lab, Trinity College Dublin!


We are based in the Smurfit Institute of Genetics, which is located adjacent to the Lincoln Place Gate of Trinity College Dublin.


Headed by Prof Dan Bradley, there are currently 3 postdoctoral fellows and 9 postgraduate students in our lab. We are also currently hosting an archeological group headed by the adjunct Prof Ron Pinhasi


Our projects include detection of selection in bovine populations, elucidation of genes involved in tuberculosis in cattle, ancient DNA studies to understand the relationship of phylogeography and domestication of cattles.

By employing high-throughput next-generation sequencing technologies, in parallel with palaeoanthropological techniques, we also try to elucidate past evolutionary processes which have shaped the genetic architecture of European populations.

We also investigate the genetics of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS),a motor neuron disease, within the Irish population.
