Recognizing the real contributions that genomic research could make to agriculture, construction and significant other animal technological know-how, evolutionary biology, and human wellbeing and fitness with appreciate to the production of types for genetic issues, the nationwide Academies convened a gaggle of people to plot a public workshop that might: (1) check those contributions; (2) determine capability study instructions for latest genomics courses; and (3) spotlight the possibilities of a coordinated, multi-species genomics attempt for the technological know-how and policymaking groups. Their efforts culminated in a workshop backed by way of the U.S. division of Agriculture, division of power, nationwide technological know-how starting place, and the nationwide Institutes of health and wellbeing. The workshop used to be convened on February 19, 2002. The target of the workshop was once to target household animal genomics and its integration with different genomics and useful genomics projects.

Still, there are no guarantees of success, and workshop participants offered a variety of advice for how researchers could improve the odds that domestic animal genome programs would grow. “What is it,” asked Richard Gibbs of the Baylor College of Medicine, “that makes for a genome to get all the way through these hoops and hurdles to get to the point where it is going to be sequenced? So far the real issue has been advocacy. ” A STRATEGY FOR AN ANIMAL GENOME INITIATIVE Ronald Phillips of the University of Minnesota offered seven factors that he believed were instrumental in getting support for the Plant Genome Initiative—a program that was developed in part from discussions among officials from the USDA, NSF, and the National Academy of Sciences in 1997 (see Box 6-1).

As far as farm animals are concerned,” O’Brien said, “it would be hard not to put the cow up on the top of the list with the people that are here at this meeting, but the people interested in the pig genome make a pretty strong argument, too. They have good opinions. Those are the two front-runners that I see…. ” Max Rothschild, of Iowa State University, on the other hand, argued for putting chickens in the top group. “It seems to me that pigs, cattle and chickens are the three highest for domestic species,” he said.

What’s been set up at Baylor (College of Medicine) and what’s been set up at Washington University represent excellent examples of how you can create high-throughput facilities to get this work done at the most efficient cost yet, at the same time, train students and train post-doctoral fellows. ” Ultimately, Wyse concluded, those calling for a centrist approach seem to have a valid argument. ” But for the parts of the project with more intellectual content, most seemed to agree that it makes sense to use university researchers.
