The research in my lab is currently focused on the following porcine functional genomic projects, all of which are externally funded.
- How the transcriptome of the developing embryo and the uterine endometrium changes during implantation, a critically important stage of successful reproduction.
- How the transcriptome of the immune system reacts to and controls infection by Salmonella spp., zoonotic pathogens impacting food safety.
- How the trancriptome of relevant tissues that control feed intake respond to food limitation and selection for decreased food intake.
