After graduating as a veterinarian, Guillaume Sallé pursued studies in quantitative genetics, to quantify, characterize or exploit observed variation in susceptibility to diseases in livestock species. Most of his work focused on the sheep – Haemonchus contortus system but also gathered a few results in horses more recently. To get a broader understanding of the host-parasite system, he also apply genomic analyses to understand how parasitic nematodes adapt to their environment, including their hosts and anthelmintic drugs. These strands of research are expected to yield new opportunities for more sustainable control of gastro-intestinal nematodes in livestock.
