Research Profile

John Benzie

Biography

Professor Benzie’s research has focused on two main themes within natural sciences: the application of genetics to understanding fundamental aspects of ecology and evolution, principally in marine systems, and in the development of aquaculture and natural resource management. He currently has a part-time position as Professor of Marine Molecular Ecology at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science, teaching a specialist course on genetics in marine science. For most of the year he heads the genetics group at WorldFish, one of the CGIAR research centers based in Penang Malaysia, coordinating international programs of research in genetic improvement of fish in Egypt, sub-Saharan Africa, south and south-east Asia.

Research: Professor Benzie continues to have an interest in molecular genetics applied to understanding marine biodiversity and evolution, continuing more than 30 years of work on the Indo-west Pacific and Great Barrier Reef. Recently his work has focused more on aquaculture, first begun in the 1980s, at AIMS, the Cooperative Research Centre for Aquaculture in Australia 1994-2000, and as head of R&D for a multinational shrimp breeding company 2003-2008. This research integrated reproductive endocrinology, selective breeding and molecular biotechnology to develop genetically improved prawns, but also included research on several mollusc species, algae and fish. This work, given the focus of the genetics group at WorldFish, now concentrates on freshwater fish and research programs in Asia and Africa.  He has authored more than 160 publications.

Teaching: At University College Cork he teaches a specialist course in genetics in the Masters in Marine Science Program and inputs to other courses in sustainable food production. Through WorldFish he is engaged in the European Graduate School in Animal Breeding and Genetics and co-supervises students at several Universities in Europe and Asia.
