REDUCED CAMPYLOBACTER INFECTION AND ENHANCED PERFORMANCE IN POULTRY WITH BIOACTIVE PHENOLICS THROUGH EPIGENETIC MODULATION OF THE GUT MICROBIOME (2017)Campylobacter jejuni, a major enteric pathogen and a natural resident in the poultry gut, causes gastrointestinal illness followed by severe post-infection complications, including Guillain-Barré syndrome, reactive arthritis, ...
(2017)My thesis was focused on the role of Comparative Gene Identification-58 (CGI-58)-mediated adipocyte lipid droplet (LD) lipolysis in thermogenesis and metabolic health. LD lipolysis in energy-dissipating brown adipose tissue ...
(2017)The cranial sensory ganglia are created from neural crest cells and placode cell-derived neurons. Defects in the migration and interaction of these cells can cause abnormalities in craniofacial development and the sensory ...
OPTIMIZING GENE TARGETING METHODOLOGIES USING CRISPR/CAS RIBONUCLEOPROTEINS IN PORCINE SOMATIC CELLS (2016)The pig is one of the most valuable animal models for agricultural and biomedical research. In this thesis, we sought to standardize procedures for routine gene targeting and demonstrate that it is possible to create ...
