In the third week of "Principles of Selection in Animal Breeding" course’s Journal Club (Course ANSC*6210; Instructor: Angela Canovas), we will discuss the following papers:
- P. Arvelius & G. Klemetsdal. 2013 How Swedish breeders can substantially increase the genetic gain for the English Setter’s hunting traits. Student: Lindsay Crawford

The students will present their paper’s review in a short presentation (12 min) followed by an open discussion (8 min) where all of us can participate.
As usual, we will also be making this seminar available remotely from room 141 using Fuze. If you wish to attend remotely follow this link: https://www.fuzemeeting.com/fuze/18bc389a/31625830.

I look forward to seeing each of you on Friday,
