The Genetics and Biotechnology program at Brigham Young University is focused on providing the highest quality mentoring experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students while developing solutions to world food problems using cutting edge technologies in genomics and biotechnology.
We’ve developed a hands-on laboratory environment where students are trained on state-of-the-art technology by expert researchers and then challenged with pertinent research projects in genetics. Our goal is to empower students to be innovators, to think critically and to participate in the scientific method.
Current projects in the laboratory include identification of novel molecular markers (SSRs and SNPs), association mapping, genetic diversity of natural and cultivated populations of domesticated and wild populations of plants, animals, and fungi, gene expression analysis using RNA-seq, genome sequencing, and cytogenetic analysis. Major funding for our projects is provided via national and international funding agencies.
