Spring 2019 Course Information
From Markers to Gene Function: Functional Change

Course Description
This course builds upon the course titled Introduction to Marker Association Analysis and QTL Detection by taking the results from association analyses and helping the students learn how these markers translate into functional changes in the animal genome. Students then learn how these changes translate into differences in animal performance. Topics covered in the course include an introduction to the tools used to generate genomic data followed by introduction and application of key bioinformatics websites, databases to identify causative genetic variation and develop gene pathways and networks. Ultimately, the whole course is tied back to the overriding concept of this program which is livestock genetic improvement. Prerequisite: Introduction to Marker Association Analysis and QTL Detection
