Durosaro, Samuel Olutunde is a Lecturer II in the Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics (ABG), College of Animal Science and Livestock Production (COLANIM), Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (FUNAAB). He is a Livestock Breeder and Geneticist with strong background in statistics and candidate gene research.

He graduated from University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria in 2010 as the best graduating student in COLANIM. He joined the services of FUNAAB in 2011 as a Junior Research Fellow. Over the years in FUNAAB, Mr. Durosaro has been carrying out research activities, supervising and training of students.

He has won so many outstanding and distinguished prizes, honours and scholarships and the most recent of such is World Bank Centre of Excellence in Agricultural Development and Sustainable Environment Scholarship for Ph.D study. Mr. Durosaro has to his credit 11 publications in learned journals. He has carried out series of research works and some of which include computational identification of fertility functions of bovine Reprimo gene, mutational and evolutionary analyses of bovine Reprimo gene, genetic parameter estimates for growth traits at different ages in Nigerian indigenous turkeys, comparison of non-linear growth models in describing the growth curve of Nigerian indigenous turkeys, to mention a few.

His research interest includes genomics, statistics and candidate gene analysis. Mr. Durosaro is a member of World Poultry Science Association, Nigerian branch and Genetics Society of Nigeria.
