Swine

The swine workshop will highlight updates on the genome assembly, applications of transcriptional and genome-wide association analyses in identification of markers linked to important production traits in swine. Speakers will present their results using new genomic technologies and bioinformatic pipelines.
Date: Saturday, January 10, 2015
Time: 1:30 PM-6:10 PM
Room: Royal Palm Salon 1-2
