Comparative Genomics - Home University of Illinois
Our laboratory is focused on creating biomedical and life sciences experimental models through comparative genomics. We are developing technology platforms and biological models for the life science community to resolve complex traits and diseases. Comparative genomics allows us to capture the genetic basis for a phenotype (trait or disease) across species (from fruit flies, worms, mice, and pigs to man).

                                




Pig geneticists go the whole hog

Genome will benefit farmers and medical researchers


Pig genome offers insights into the feistiest of farm animals


High quality draft genome sequence for the pig is published


Lawrence Schook named to animal research institute

Congratulations, Dr. Schook
