Marc Teissier, a Visiting Ph.D. Student from France, will present a special CGIL Seminar on Friday, December 15th. The seminar will begin at 1:30 pm in room 030 of the Animal Science & Nutrition building. The title of Marc's presentation is: "Integration of QTL and/or major genes in the genomic evaluation of French dairy goats for milk production traits, morphological traits and somatic cell score ".
Marc Teissier is a visiting Ph.D. student from France. Marc completed an advanced technician certificate in animal production from the agricultural high school in Challuy, France. This certificate trains students in the management of a livestock farm and teaches students how to conduct all aspects of animal husbandry. In 2013, he obtained his professional license in Animals Genetics and Breeding Development in the Faculty of Science and Technology in Linoges, France as well as a certificate in sheep artificial insemination.
Marc then completed a Master’s at AgroParisTech, in Paris, from 2013-2015. The first year of his Master’s focused on Integrative Biology and the second year focused on genetics and genomic diversity. During his Master’s he completed two internships, first a two-month internship investigating the expression of regulatory regions in dairy cattle using RT-qPCR, and second, a six-month internship studying the ability of meta-analyses and joint analyses to select variants in whole-genome sequences for the genomic evaluation of milk production traits in French dairy cattle breeds.
After completing his Master’s degree, Marc began a Ph.D. at the National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRA) in Toulouse, France. His research focuses on the genomic evaluation of French dairy goats for milk production traits, morphological traits and somatic cell score. Marc has had the opportunity to visit the University of Guelph for the last three months to continue his Ph.D. research.
