You're Invited! PhD Defense Seminars


It has been a very busy fall for the Decker Computational Genomics Group! This will be capped off by two PhD defenses the first week of December. 

“Leveraging Large-scale Beef Cattle Genomic Data to Identify the Architecture of Polygenic Selection  and Local Adaptation”

Presented by: Troy Rowan

December 1st, 2020 at 1 pm CST

Seminar will be presented on Zoom.

In January, Troy will be starting as an assistant professor with a focus on beef genomics research and extension at University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture. 

"Genomics of Seasonal Hair Shedding and Ecoregion-Specific Growth to Identify Environmentally-Adapted Beef Cattle"

Presented by: Harly Durbin

December 3rd, 2020 at 12 pm CST

Seminar will be presented on Zoom

In January, Harly will be continuing in my group as a postdoctoral researcher.

We appreciate all of the support and collaboration from the beef industry that has made this research possible. Further, research would not have been possible without support from Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. 2016-68004-24827 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

We hope you will join us to get the latest on the research of these two fantastic scientists!
