Master of Science in Agriculture (Ref.#052)

I received my master's degree in Agriculture from Western Kentucky University, with concentrations in Crop Science and Genetics and Applied Economics and Management.  Course work included statistical analysis of genetic association, gene expression, genetic markers, and gene-environment interaction; bioenergy and biopharmaceutical crops; and experimental design. 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.
