Master of Science in Agriculture (Ref.#052): Emphasis in Agronomy with a Focus on Crop Science and Genetics

I received my master's degree in Agriculture from Western Kentucky University, with an emphasis in agronomy with a focus on crop science and genetics.  Course work included statistical analysis of genetic association, gene expression, genetic markers, and gene-environment interaction; applications of marker assisted selection for the improvement of the fatty acid profile of soybeans; and the physiological and biochemical basis of systemic acquired resistance in plants. Additionally I completed independent studies integrating population genetics, econometrics, and game theory in relation to perceptions of biotechnology and trait resistance management. 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.
