Dr. Terje Raudsepp, PI, Associate Professor



Dr. Raudsepp is primarily interested in genome organization and evolution, construction of physical maps, study of functional profiles of individual genes and their association with inherited disorders and fertility problems. She is applying diverse approaches to study inherited disorders and fertility in horses, as well as various phenotypes. In addition, by examining other domestic and wild species, including cattle, pig, dog, cat, zebras, giraffe, California condor, important information can be obtained on the overall organization and evolution of genomes. Dr. Raudsepp is also focusing on the evolutionary dynamics of sex chromosomes, particularly the Pseudoautosomal Region (PAR) of the X and Y, and the male-specific region of the Y chromosome (MSY).
