Mission Statement of the Equine Genetics and Genomics Laboratory:

 

The mission of the Equine Genetics and Genomics Research Group is to use advanced genetic and genomic technologies to improve our understanding of equine health and biology.

 

Our goals are:

- to use state-of-the-art molecular genetics and genomics tools to study complex genetic disease, physiological variation and genetic diversity in equine populations.
- to generate knowledge that will enable veterinarians to better predict, diagnose, and treat disease.
- to improve the health of companion animals, livestock, and humans through the use of the horse as a biomedical model.
- to engage in collaborative research efforts with other researchers, veterinarians, and horse owners to address relevant needs of the equine community.
 

 

Current Projects:

The Equine Genetic Diversity Consortium

Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS)

Equine Recurrent Uveitis (ERU)

Gray Horse Melanoma

Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy (PSSM), Type 1

Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy (PSSM), Type 2

Recurrent Exertional Rhabdomyolysis (RER) 

Osteochondrosis (OCD)
