Neuroscience and Reproductive Biology: Transgenics and Production in Farm Animals

Dr. Ayres research interests involve advanced reproductive techniques in the goat, particularly as they apply to the production of transgenic and cloned goats. Dr. Ayres current work, in collaboration with GTC Biotherapeutics, Inc., examines the hormonal aspects of the estrous cycle and how the hormonal milieu affects the quality of oocytes produced for nuclear transfer.
