1st W. E. Petersen Symposium

"Dairy Genomics-Future Trends and Opportunities"

Presented by the Department of Animal Science, December 11, 2000

Dairy genomics was the theme of the first W. E. Petersen Symposium. The major objectives of the event were to: 1) provide our graduate students and colleagues with current information about advances in dairy genomics in the U.S., and 2) to provide a brainstorming forum to discuss the future of dairy genomics, possible development of a multi-state reserach program, and possible development of an F-2 Holstein population. The inaugural seminar was held on the University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus with 85 researchers and students in attendance.
