Currently, our main areas of research focus are:
I. Investigation of genetic factors affecting fertility and embryonic survival.

II. Genomic imprinting: identification of imprinted genes in cattle; role of imprinted genes in early embryonic development and fertility in cattle.

III. Nutritional epigenomics: effects of maternal nutrition on the epigenome and transcriptome of the offspring
