Genomics Tools Lead To Healthier, More Resilient Chickens
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.
