About Emmeline Hill
I am an equine geneticist with a focus on Thoroughbred racehorse genetics. My scientific interests however are more broadly in animal population and conservation genomics, and functional genomics. In 2010 I co-founded Equinome, the first equine genetics testing company to test for a gene associated with racing performance, which we called the 'Speed Gene'. I am Chief Science Officer for Plusvital, an Irish equine science company that acquired Equinome in 2015.
