Master of Science in Agriculture (Ref.#052): Emphasis-Bioscience Economics

I received my master's degree in Agriculture from Western Kentucky University, with an emphasis in bioscience economics combining the fields of agronomy and genetics with applied economics.  My course work included statistics, econometrics,  biometry, and experimental design as well as Mendelian and population genetics with applications to plant breeding including statistical analysis of genetic association, gene expression, genetic markers, and gene-environment interaction. This was complemented by additional courses in applied economics and finance. These courses provided a firm foundation for economic and policy analysis related to genomics and life sciences.
