Dallas-A panel of equine experts plans to explore the benefitsof equine genome research for the first time on March 2, during the AmericanQuarter Horse Association convention here.

"Genome Research 101 for the Horse Industry" is sponsored bythe American Association of Equine Practitioners, the AQHA, Morris AnimalFoundation and the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation, Inc.

The findings of genome research may someday allow scientists to geneticallymap the horse. This will ultimately enable investigators to identify andtreat equine disease through gene therapy, experts say.

Presenters are: Dr. Doug Antczak, Cornell University; Dr. Ernie Bailey,University of Kentucky; Dr. Jim Belknap, Auburn University; Drs.
