I know there are still some fans of Rokimoto here, if you are interested in reading a few things of and from him use your favorite search engine, enter his name(not Rokimoto) and there is quite a few interesting reads. many will lead back to older COOP threads when poultry genetics was more a topic here. They are not all poultry related but anything he writes is interesting.

Wish we could track him down again--and renew his participation. Thank goodness I printed out many COOP threads of his that fit my needed information! CJR

Not many of use left that remember the "Old" Classroom. Here is a link to those pages for our new members. Old Classroom

Some good reading there if you have the time.

Ron has left his job at the University and now works in the private sector(broiler industry).

I assume that whereas working for the university means "sharing information", working for the private sector means keeping things as secretive as possible.

There are some very knowledgable persons on this forum, but Dr.Okimoto knew so much, about so many different parts of the genetics, the coop is definitely not the same since he "dropped out".

I bet he just doesnt have access to the free time that a prof is accustomed to ! + he used the university puter much of the time and that isnt likely anymore either.
He did make a few posts at our genetics site after he exited the COOP but then disappeared again, I presume from a move.
I appreciate the knowledge which is still here from time to time.
I think his last work at U A was with the use molecular genetic markers to study the genetics of inbreeding depression in a random bred line, or population of chickens. That is what I thought may be of interest to some as there was another thread re: the topic a couple weeks ago.

Had a 'duh' moment this morning. I thought he had been back recently but realised today that one of Kazjaps threads from 2003 where rokimoto had posted had only been 'warmed up'.
Too bad.
