Carrie  GeddesMy name is Carrie Geddes, I am a fourth year student at the University of Alberta working towards a BSc in  Animal Health. I am very interested in how we can improve Animal welfare using genetics. For the purpose of this  project we will be looking at improving livestock animal welfare by selecting for disease resistance in our livestock  animals. I find this field to be very interesting as it has lots of opportunity for more research in the future.

 

 

 

 

Rebecca FaulknerMy name is Rebecca Faulkner, I am a fourth year student at the University of Alberta working towards a BSc in  Animal Health.  I am excited to be working on this project that links Genetics, Disease and Welfare because I feel  that animal welfare is emerging topic and is heavily impacted by disease in modern production facilities.  I think  genetics is an interesting way to address the issue and look forward to seeing where this project takes us.

 

 

 

 

Amirali FakheriMy name is Amirali Fakheri, I am fourth year of animal science major at the University of Alberta. I am really  interested to do this project because I think animal welfare and genetic, are important topic for producers. Hopefully  at the end of project we are going to communicate to producers how to prevents common diseases through the  genetic selection.
