The cooperative provides required Federal Milk Marketing Order services to members and is co-owner of a milk quality testing laboratory for components, cultures and somatic cell counts.
To further improve this technology, it is critical to first have a robust and efficient research system to measure gene targeting efficiency in human somatic cell lines.
With increasing focus on milk quality and demand for lower somatic cell counts, it is important that dairy producers have the tools to help reduce mastitis incidence and effectively manage mastitis cases.

As a context to interpret the significance of this application, consider the reprogramming of differentiated (somatic) cells from a given tissue to pluripotent stem cell state, which can then differentiate into cells of a different type of tissue.
