The first international symposium on Milk Genomics & Human Health brought scientists from around the world and across the milk research spectrum to the task of annotating the subsets of mammalian genomes responsible for milk and the nutritional functions of its constituents as food for mammalian offspring. These scientists are a part of The Milk Genomics Consortium, an international consortium for milk genomic research. The general goals of the Milk Genomics Consortium are to link the scientific community through milk and genomics to understand the biological and health-conferring values of milk, to create tools for interactive web-based data exchange, and to coordinate pre-competitive and post-competitive research on the components, functions and health benefits of milk and its components.
