Annual ‘ROS’ Workshop

ROS Workshop Slider

The ‘ROS’ (roll up one’s sleeves) Workshop is the International Milk Genomics Consortium’s (IMGC) platform of scientific virtual workshops that focuses on the translational issues in milk science, identifies key hurdles to scientific development and recruits innovative solutions from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

The first two hours of the scientific virtual workshops are dedicated to oral presentations with guest speakers followed by a 1-hour interactive panel discussion with attendees. The goal of these virtual scientific workshops and this platform hosted by the IMGC is for participants to come away with a better understanding of bringing the discoveries of science to practice as concepts and products for human health.

  • Genes, milk composition and properties

  • Milk components and function from various animal breeds

  • Small milk components: metabolites, oligosaccharides, peptides and vitamins

  • Technological properties of milk

  • New breeding markers for improved milk quality

  • Microbial ecology analyses

  • Comparative genomics of lactation

  • Milk protein abundance, composition and measurement

  • Stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, cloning, transgenics

  • Bioinformatics

  • RNA extraction, sequencing and creating sequence libraries
