The long-term goal of the research in my laboratory is to determine the mechanism(s) responsible for rumen development. A specific goal is to understand the role butyrate plays at the molecular level in this process. Research interests include:

  • Development of a cell culture system to study rumen epithelial cell differentiation in vitro
  • Isolation and characterization of cDNA clones of genes undergoing differential expression during rumen development
  • Determination of the mechanisms regulating gene expression in the developing rumen
