Biography

Rex Dunham is being currently employed as Professor in College of Agriculture, Auburn University. Fisheries professor Rex Dunham, whose research has given the catfishindustry a premium hybrid catfish that is a cross between a female channelcatfish and a male blue catfish, has filed for provisional patents on technologyhe has developed to produce hybrid catfish embryos by spawning channel catfishmales containing blue catfish testes with normal channel catfish females.The technology will eliminate the need for artificial fertilization to producechannel-blue hybrid catfish embryos and should make the production of hybridcatfish embryos more cost effective and practical.Rex Dunham is recognized as a world leader in his field and has been awarded $14 million for research through 77 federal, state and university grants during his time at Auburn. He came to Auburn in 1978 to work on his masters degree, which he earned in 1979 followed by Ph.D. in 1981. He has published 223 scientific articles, chapters and proceedings papers. Dunhams major research achievements include:

* First researcher to demonstrate that selection works for the genetic improvement of channel catfish;

* First release of genetically improved fish in the United States. In total, responsible for four releases of genetically improved catfish;

* His research has led to the formation of the first four commercial genetics and breeding companies in the catfish industry; and

* First to produce a transgenic fish in the United States, and the fourth worldwide.

Research Interest

His primary research interest is the genetic improvement of catfish. The areas and related areas within catfish genetics include selective breeding, hybridization, gene transfer, gene mapping and genomics and reproductive physiology.
