Prof. Christine Baes uses whole genome sequencing to identify genetic variations that promote desirable traits.
For hundreds of years, farmers have been breeding animals for the traits they find most desirable such as faster weight gain or increased milk production. Today, we can use new technology and our growing understanding of genetics to identify the actual genes that promote these traits.
That’s the research focus of new dairy genomics professor Christine Baes, who’s taken up the Semex – Canadian Dairy Network (CDN) – Holstein Canada Professorship in Dairy Genomics at the University of Guelph.
