  Research Interests:

  Research interests include analysis of genetic variation in reproduction and disease resistance in livestock and laboratory species and refinement of the bovine / human / mouse comparative map. A primary focus is identification of genes (quantitative trait loci or QTL) contributing to variation in bovine twinning rate. Use of markers linked with twinning rate QTL in selection programs will greatly facilitate increasing or decreasing twinning rate as deemed appropriate by a given cattle management system. Comparative mapping efforts are targeted to genomic regions harboring QTL and regions lacking comparative map data.
