Researchers Seek to Identify Genetic Markers for Equine Metabolic Syndrome


MSI PI Molly McCue (associate professor, Veterinary Population Medicine) was interviewed by radio station KFGO in Fargo-Moorhead recently to discuss her lab’s research into the genetics of Equine Metabolic Syndrome. The interview can be found on the station’s website: University of Minnesota research creating a test to find genetic markers for Equine Metabolic Syndrome.

Professor McCue uses MSI for several genetic and genomic projects studying horses. She runs the Equine Genetics and Genomics Laboratory. Lab member Sian Durward-Akhurst presented a poster at the 2018 MSI Research Exhibition that was selected as one of the Finalists in the Biological and Medical Sciences category.
