Welcome to the Mule Team Site

This is the Welcome Page for the laboratory of Randall S. Prather.

Thank you for visiting our laboratory web page. Here you will have the opportunity to learn about the people in the lab that do the great things that we publish. I’ve been very fortunate to assemble a team of great people that work well together. We also have world-wide collaborations that result in accomplishing goals that are unattainable in a single laboratory.

My laboratory, in combination with others here at the University of Missouri, constitute the MU Livestock Engineering Team, or the Mule Team. Our focus has been in pigs, but is branching out into other species. We have made over 70 different genetic modifications in pigs and produced over 1,200 cloned pigs.
