Research Focus:

Beatriz Gutiérrez-Gil’s research is at the forefront of genomics in sheep, addressing critical aspects of production and health. 🐑 Her work spans diverse areas:

  1. Milk Production & Inflammation: Investigating the impact of prepubertal dietary protein restriction on first lactation milk traits and mammary gland inflammatory response in ewe lambs.
  2. Transcriptomic Analysis: Exploring perirenal fat transcriptomes in Spanish Assaf suckling lambs with varying kidney knob and channel fat levels, unraveling key molecular insights.
  3. Growth & Meat Quality: Unraveling relationships between growth-related traits and carcass/meat quality in Spanish Assaf suckling lambs.
  4. Epigenetic Marks: Studying intergenerational effects of dietary protein restriction in dairy ewes on epigenetic marks in the perirenal fat of their suckling lambs.
  5. Long Non-Coding RNAs (lncRNAs): Identifying regulatory functions of lncRNAs associated with T. circumcincta infection in adult sheep.

This comprehensive approach contributes significantly to understanding the genetic basis of traits crucial for sheep farming. 🧬👩‍🌾 #Genomics #SheepResearch #MolecularBiology #LivestockScience
