Research

Major Responsibilities/Research Interests

My team conducts research in bovine quantitative genetics and functional genomics. Our current research interests and activities include: (1) identification and characterization of genes for economically important traits including growth, feed efficiency, fat deposition, carcass merit traits, and fertility traits in beef cattle; (2) investigation of functions of DNA polymorphisms and elucidation of genetic mechanisms regulating growth, feed efficiency, fat deposition, meat quality, and fertility traits in beef cattle; (3) development of genomic tools to enable the beef industry to improve the above mentioned traits through genomic selection and genome assisted management.

Courses

AFNS 585 - Advanced Quantitative Genomics

Genomics and analysis of quantitative traits in farm animals and plants. Detecting, locating and measuring effects of quantitative traits loci (QTL). Recent developments in QTL mapping and gene discovery and genomic selection. Lectures will be followed by active discussion of selected readings and demonstration of commonly used software for analyzing genomic data. Normally offered in alternate years. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.


AN SC 485 - Animal Genetics and Breeding

Application of genetic/genomic principles and methods to the improvement of livestock and poultry. Prerequisite: AN SC 384 or consent of instructor.
