Recognizing the important contributions that genomic analysis can make to agriculture, production and companion animal science, evolutionary biology, and human health with respect to the creation of models for genetic disorders, the National Academies convened a group of individuals to plan a public workshop that would: (1) assess these contributions; (2) identify potential research directions for existing genomics programs; and (3) highlight the opportunities of a coordinated, multi-species genomics effort for the science and policymaking communities. Their efforts culminated in a workshop sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health. The workshop was convened on February 19, 2002. The goal of the workshop was to focus on domestic animal genomics and its integration with other genomics and functional genomics projects.It is standard to dissect a fetal pig in high school and college biology courses, for instance, because the organs of the fetal pig are arranged in a way that is anatomically similar to those of a human. ... showed a diagram of the mammalian family tree, as determined by a comparison of corresponding stretches of DNA among seventy different mammalian species, work done by researchers at the Universityanbsp;...
