Research

Major Responsibilities/Research Interests

  • My research focuses on studying bovine “OMICS” and “MICROBES”. Specific areas of interest include:
  • Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of host-microbial interactions by characterization of bovine gut microbial ecology and its functions using metagenomics/metatranscriptomics approaches, and host gene expression using a functional genomics approach
  • Association between gut microbial ecology and feed efficiency, methane emission and gut immunity development in beef and dairy cattle
  • Study of the bovine transcriptome, proteome, and non-coding microRNAs and their roles in economically important traits

AFNS 575 - Advanced Functional Genomics Technologies in Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science

Modular course offering training in a variety of research technologies. Modules offered will vary from term to term. Modules may include HPLC, gel electrophoresis, real-time PCR, gene isolation and cloning, gene amplification, cDNA library screening and microarray. Prerequisite: Consent of Instructor.

Fall Term 2020
AN SC 318 - Influence of Microorganisms on Animal Biology

Fundamentals of interactions between microorganisms and animals and how these interactions integrate with animal production and improvement of animal health. Emphasis on the evolution and ecology of the microbial inhabitants with the host and the underlying molecular mechanisms of the host microbial interactions. Pre- or corequisite: MICRB 265 or BIOL 207.
