Damarius F. and Angelica B. are Ph.D. students in genetics working with chickens in Uganda. Part of their research projects through the Sue Lamont Lab in Animal Science is to create chickens that are more disease-resistant and heat-resistant for people in Africa. The US Agency for International Development conducts research into food security through the 'Feed the Future' initiative. Poultry production contributes to family nutrition in many countries.
