About Jibin Zhang

I started my postdoc research work in Dr. Susan Lamont's lab in Department of Animal Science in Iowa State University after graduation with Ph.D degree in Animal Science in The Ohio State University in May 2015. I am now involved in RNA-seq research projects to identify genes and pathways regulating resistance to heat stress and Newcastle Disease virus. Because both heat stress and Newcastle Disease are major causes of economic loss in poultry industry, the candidate gene selected from RNAseq study can be potential markers to improve poultry production performance through breeding.
