The purpose of the symposium is to identify critical needs and opportunities
to advance the use of animal genomics to solve problems in animal health.
This conference provides an excellent opportunity for leaders in the fields of
animal genomics and animal health to come together and plan new directions to
fundamentally change the way we approach animal health research. Recent
advances in biotechnology and genomics present unique opportunities to address
global animal health challenges through exceptional scientific collaborations that
can generate truly innovative strategies.
These exceptional collaborations will pave the way for integrating core competencies in science, computer engineering, and veterinary medicine, by connecting those who are currently engaged in cutting edge genomics research with animal health scientists that are disease experts and understand the real world challenges facing animal health.
