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).


Dr. Sharmila Ghosh, Post Doctoral Research Associate

Sharmila Gosh

Sharmila's research interests focus on involvement of large-scale structural variation among various forms of Disorder of Sexual Development in horses. She will also perform karyotyping and chromosome analysis of various species..
