Abstract

Susan Lamont was among the first to hear the announcement that the chicken would be the first farm animal species to have its genome sequenced. She thought: "Yes!" Lamont, a Charles F. Curtiss Distinguished Professor in animal science, is a leading expert in poultry immunology and molecular genetics. She knew the power of genomics tools that allow analysis of vast numbers of genes would take her research to a whole new level. Especially when combined with ISU's unique poultry resources.
