Dr. Tae Sub Park is a Professor of Graduate School of International Agricultural Technology, PyeongChang campus, Seoul National University. He received his PhD degree in the field of animal genetic engineering from Seoul National University in 2002. As a post-doc, he extended his career to stem cell biology in UCLA. His lab mainly focusses on the production of genome-edited chickens and studies on functional genomics particularly in poultry. His research group is working on cell culturing, genetic modulation and functional study with avian species as a model animal as well as pig and cattle. Recently, based on CRISPR-Cas9 technical platform, his group reported on the generation of specific gene-edited chickens such as myostatin and G0S2 gene knockout chickens indicating that the valuable economic traits could be intentionally modulated and rapidly improved in livestock animal. He is currently serving as an associate editor of Animal Bioscience, and Journal of Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology. He is also the awardee of the 16th AB/CAPI Distinguish Service Award .

Dr. Ching Fu Tu is a principal researcher at Agricultural Technology Research Institute in Taiwan. He received his PhD degree from National Taiwan University with an animal biotechnology major. He has involv ed been in generation of transgenic pigs for the study of xenotransplantation and biopharmaceutics, which resulted in manufacturing of human factor IX from transgenic sows’ milk. His current research efforts are focused on porcine genome gene editing (GE) for pig production, especially on disease resistance. As concerning the genetic diversity of pigs and practice the achievement from laboratory to farm, he currently endeavors to improve the efficiency of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) with GE/induced pluripotent stem cells, vitrification of the SCNT embryos, and non surgical embryos transfer on farm.

Dr. Minseok Kim is an Assistant Professor in the Division ofAnimal Sciences of Chonnam National University. He received the BS and MS degrees from Seoul National University and his PhD from the Ohio State University. Following postdoctoral research at USMARC-USDA-ARS, he was hired as a researcher of animal nutrition and physiology in the National Institute of Animal Science, Korea in 2015 and has been on the faculty in the Division of Animal Sciences at Chonnam National University since September 2018. He is interested in rumen microorganisms of ruminant animals that are important to ruminant nutrition and health. His research is focused on 1) studying the association between rumen microbiome and feed efficiency in Hanwoo cattle, and 2) studying the impact of microalgae species on rumen methane production. He has served as an associate editors-in-chief of Journal of Animal Science and Technology.

Dr. Susumu Muroya is working in the Institute of Livestock and Grassland Science, NARO (The National Agriculture and Food Research Organization) in Japan. He received his B.Sc and Master’s degree in Osaka University, and Ph.D. in Tohoku University, Japan. He authored dozens of scientific publications focusing on bovine and porcine skeletal muscle development, growth, and postmortem aging, including regulation of skeletal muscle fiber type by DNA methylation and microRNAs. In these years, Dr. Muroya and his colleagues are interested in metabolomics of bovine and porcine muscles with various backgrounds of breed, physiological status, and meat quality traits to elucidate the underlying muscle metabolism, sometimes combining with transcriptomics. He is also the awardee of the 16th AB/CAPI Outstanding Research Award (Best Paper).
