Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: An overview of the progress for Dr. Sonstegard’s work in applied genomics in dairy cattle will be presented. The overview will include how applied research in livestock offers unique investigative models to discover gene function as a result of genetic load or inbreeding and also how genome selection in livestock is a model for predictive medicine.
