Research Project: Extraction and Assessment of Milk Cell RNA in MILQ Samples

Location: Obesity and Metabolism Research

Project Number: 2032-51530-025-050-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2020
End Date: Aug 1, 2021

The objective of the current project is to extract and quantify milk cell RNA from MILQ samples.

University of California-Davis will extract and purify RNA from TRIZol-preserved milk samples. UC Davis will also quantify the RNA yield of all samples and the integrity of a representative subset (5%). There are currently 563 of these samples at the Davis location, expecting up to 100 more by end of 2020. Not to exceed 700 samples.
