Major Responsibilities/Research Interests

  • My research focuses on studying bovine “OMICS” and “MICROBES”. Specific areas of interest include:
  • Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of host-microbial interactions by characterization of bovine gut microbial ecology and its functions using metagenomics/metatranscriptomics approaches, and host gene expression using a functional genomics approach
  • Association between gut microbial ecology and feed efficiency, methane emission and gut immunity development in beef and dairy cattle
  • Study of the bovine transcriptome, proteome, and non-coding microRNAs and their roles in economically important traits
