"I have known Glynis for many years while she was a research student studying for her PhD, and later as member of staff teaching students and as a co-author with myself for a textbook on genetics, in Aberystwyth University. She is one of those very rare people who have a complete understanding of the science of genetics, and with a particular enthusiasm for all aspects of the genetics of horses. She is also an excellent communicator, in both the spoken and the written word."
