Guest Post: Population Structure & Genetic Improvement in Livestock by Dr. Heather Huson

         July 30, 2014

Genetic improvement in livestock, particularly dairy cattle, has been a priority for both industry and researchers for nearly a century.  While the animal itself is the foundation for improvement, our research and the implementation of improvement has progressed with developing technologies and priorities.  In terms of genetics, we have evolved from basic measures of heritability to identifying specific mutations and… Read more »

Guest Post: Uncovering the Genetic Mechanisms of Common Language Disabilities, by John Eicher

         May 20, 2014

When many people think of learning disabilities such as dyslexia and language impairment, they typically do not think of a biological or medical condition. Even more rarely do people think of these conditions as being the result of biological and genetic phenomena. However, that is exactly what I have thought of every day during my doctoral training in the Department… Read more »
