CGIL seminar this week will be presented by Dr. E. James (Jim) Squires
Dr. E. James (Jim) Squires completed his Ph.D. in Biochemistry in 1984 and then did postdoctoral work at the Laboratory of Pharmacology, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. In 1987, he came to the Dept. of Animal and Poultry Science, University of Guelph as an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1992 and to full professor in 1997. He became Chair of the Department of Animal Biosciences in April 2014.
His research program is involved with the identification of candidate genes affecting important traits, especially those related to meat quality and metabolic disorders in livestock and the development of genetic markers for use in Marker Assisted Selection programs.
This Friday, Dr. Squires will give us a talk entitled: “Solving the boar taint problem”
