Professor David W Burt from The Roslin Institute, will be giving a keynote lecture on the chicken genome. This was published in Nature 10 year ago.
This was the first livestock and avian genome to be sequenced and analysed.
The analysis of this genome was supported by grants from BBSRC.
The keynote lecture will take place at the Avian Model Systems conference, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
