Molecular Basis for Feed Efficiency - 2012 Cell Biology Symposium

The 2012 Cell Biology Symposium focuses on the molecular research which can impact feed efficiency on food animal production.  The symposium includes presentations regarding unique roles for agouti proteins and melanocortin;  physiological basis defining feed efficiency differences
in pigs selected on residual feed intake; genetics of feed efficiency in dairy and beef cattle; and mitochondrial function to global gene
