Insight – A Breakthrough Against PRRS (Extended Version)


  Doug sits down with Kristin Whitworth (left), a research scientist in the Division of Animal Sciences, to talk about the recent findings that were made in the fight against a deadly disease that annually costs the pork industry hundreds of millions of dollars. She’ll also talk about the revolutionary CRISPR system used in this work and how it has opened new possibilities for her and her colleagues, including Randall Prather (center) and Kevin Wells (left), in terms of getting faster results while lowering overall lab costs at the same time.

Insight is a production of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
