Agricultural Experiment Station Publication. http://www.animalgenome.org/community/NRSP8/2004/index.html Technical Abstract: The NRSP-8 National Animal Genome Program held its annual meeting in San Diego at the Plant & Animal Genome XIII conference in January 2005. This report is a summary of the Swine Genome Committee which met on January 15, 2005. Researchers reviewed developments in swine genomics nationwide and internationally. Joan Lunney, NSRP-8 Swine sub-committee chair, presided over the session. The morning session included invited speakers on swine genome development (Hirohide Uenishi, Japan) and microarrays (Randall Prather, Missouri; Lucina Galina, PIC/Sygen; and Scott Fahrenkrug, Minnesota). Dr. Fahrenkrug then led a discussion of plans of the joint NRSP8/NC1004 committee on future swine microarray options. The afternoon started with presentations by Larry Schook, Illinois, on the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium progress and by Ronnie Green, USDA ARS, on the USDA Animal Genomics Workshop. The swine genome database can be accessed at http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Projects/S_scrofa/. There were then updates from Margaret Dentine, NRSP8 Swine Technical Committee Advisor, Muquarrab Qureshi, USDA CSREES National Program Leader, and Max Rothschild, Swine Genome Coordinator. The NRSP-8 Station Reports were presented by Joe Cassady (North Carolina State University), Cathy Ernst (Michigan State University), Max Rothschild and Chris Tuggle (Iowa State University), Gary Rohrer (USDA ARS MARC), Joan Lunney (USDA ARS BARC), Zhihua Jiang (Washington State University) and Craig Beattie (University of Nevada).
