Noncoding RNA & Epigenetics in Animal Health

Time: 4:00 pm
day: Day One


  • Demonstrating how host-virus interaction and epigenetics regulation with ncRNA are orchestrated together in Marek’s Disease process
  • Recently, we also found the chromatin structure, alleles, and epi-alleles as biomarkers actively involved in the process that modify responses to MDV infection
  • Interestingly, epigenetic manipulation controlling the virus loads paves a feasible way to improve animal health and welfare
