Technology Tools Like CRISPR Are Pork Opportunities

Opportunities for Swine Genetic ImprovementOpportunities for Swine Genetic Improvement Thomas Titus, TriPork, Inc., shares the opportunities available for genetic improvements in swine through technologies like CRISPR. Some observations: 1) The conversation of biologic and genetic tools like CRISPR are happening and the agriculture livestock world needs to be engaged in the conversation continuously, 2) Collaboration is critical [video].

Industry Perspective: Developing Human Capital for the U.S. Swine Genetics Field

Industry Perspective: Developing Human Capital for the U.S. Swine Genetics FieldIndustry Perspective: Developing Human Capital for the U.S. Swine Genetics Field Dr. Tom Rathje, DNA Genetics, shares thoughts on the future of the swine industry and animal genetics. Dr. Rathje mentions that problems being faced are complex. Geneticists, and the suppliers they work for, need help to be successful and are limited by current technology and knowledge.

Dr. Rathje concludes with an outline of what students today need: Application of statistics and experimental design to non-breeding data sets, Know how to run a genetic analysis, know how to get data into and out of databases, and use tools like R to build tools to analyze data in those databases [video].

Population Management Using Genomics (ROH)

Population Management Using Genomics (ROH)Population Management Using Genomics (ROH) Dr. Jeremy Howard, University of Nebraska, presents research and approaches to better understand your herds through genomics. Genomic information can help identify regions that give rise to reduced performance and low genetic diversity [video].
