The research in my lab is currently focused on the following porcine functional genomic projects, all of which are externally funded.

  1. How the transcriptome of the developing embryo and the uterine endometrium changes during implantation, a critically important stage of successful reproduction.
  2. How the transcriptome of the immune system reacts to and controls infection by Salmonella spp., zoonotic pathogens impacting food safety.
  3. How the trancriptome of relevant tissues that control feed intake respond to food limitation and selection for decreased food intake.
