Molecular Medicine & Pathology seminar: From SNP chips to sequencing: Genomic applications in NZ sheep Event as iCalendar

23 May 2013

3:30 - 4:30pm

Venue: Seminar Room 501-505, Building 501, 85 Park Road, Grafton

To enhance the value, productivity and profitability of the New Zealand sheep Industry, AgResearch’s Animal Genomics team have developed a ‘genomic tool box’ for both genome wide selection and association studies. Next generation sequencing has allowed the rapid development and implementation of Ovine SNP chip technology from low (5K) to high (700K) density. These and the use of genotyping-by-sequencing in sheep will be presented.

Speaker

: Dr Shannon Clarke (AgResearch Ltd, Invermay, Dunedin)

Shannon Clarke is a scientist who does fascinating work with genomics on a massive scale! Her group have developed their own genome-wide analysis tools for understanding the biology and improving the breeding of agricultural animals.
