Michigan State University
I work in the Meat Animal Muscle Biology and Molecular Genetics Laboratory. I assisted with a project with the objective of identify identifying genomic loci involved in controlling the expression of back fat in pigs. My position involved spot aligning 88 gene microarrays that contain probes for over 18,000 genes using GenePix pro software for swine back fat genome linkage analysis. Currently, I am making electrophoresis gels and using them to analyze genes in a DNA cocktail. I am also performing PCR techniques to analyze DNA for a research project I am involved in.
