Animal Science

The Department of Animal Science originally concerned itself with teaching the selection, breeding, feeding and care of livestock. Today it continues this study of the symbiotic relationship between animals and humans, with practical focuses on agribusiness, science, and animal management.

History
The Department of Animal Husbandry was established in 1898. The name of the department was changed to the Department of Animal Science in 1962. The Department of Poultry Science was merged into the department in 1971.

Abstract

Genus and Species. Sus scrofa. Loci. DNAX-activation protein 10 (DAP10) and natural killer cell receptor D (NKG2D). Source and Description of Primers. Primers were designed from the porcine DAP10 and NKG2D sequences (GenBank accession nos. AF285446 and AF285448, respectively). The DAP10 primers were used to amplify approximately 500 bp of the fragment spanning DAP10 exon 4 and DAP12 exon 5. The DAP10 and DAP12 genes are linked in opposite transcriptional orientation, separated by 152 bp (Yim et al., 2001). The NKG2D primers were used to amplify approximately 700 bp of the fragment spanning NKG2D exons 8 and 9.
