EAAP has been delivering programs on animal science for over 70 years. After careful planning, we are this year going to provide some outstanding webinars by inviting top speakers who will introduce subjects related to animal science and livestock industry to scientists and technicians.
The Webinar series is planned to be organized monthly to inform, update, disseminate with high profile speakers the EAAP individual members. Apart from exceptions due to organizational issues, the EAAP Webinars will be held monthly, in the afternoon of the second Tuesday of the month.
The tenth EAAP Webinar titled Novel genotyping solutions to consider trait-associated variants in animal improvement programs is organized in collaboration with the Horizon 2020 funded project BovReg – Identification of functionally active genomic features relevant to phenotypic diversity and plasticity in cattle.
The first presentation will be given by Ruidong Xiang from “University of Melbourne” (Australia) on “Identifying genome-wide regulatory variants and using them in genomic prediction of cattle traits“. Marie-Pierre Sanchez from “INRAE” (France) will then talk about “Use of custom chips to validate causal variants in cattle“. Afterwards, Jesse Hoff from “Gencove” (USA) will make a speech about “Routine Implementation of Sequencing in Genomic Evaluations using Low-Pass Imputation and Hybrid Capture“. Finally, the last talk will be on “Opportunities using structural variation in animal improvement programs” by Aniek Bouwman from Wageningen University & Research (The Netherlands).
The webinar will continue with a Panel session moderated by Hubert Pausch from “ETH Zurich” (Switzerland) with the presence of the speakers Didier Boichard from “INRAE” (France), Jesse Hoff from “Gencove” (USA), Serap Gonen from “Mowi” (Norway), Cord Drögemüller from “University of Bern” (Switzerland) and Franz Seefried from “Qualitas AG” (Switzerland).
By attending EAAP Webinars, you will be able to stay on top of the latest research and gain new inspiration. Connect and network through a range of interactive presentations, discussions and workshops. Get updates on the latest results and opinions about the animal science and the livestock industry. You can use this program also to teach your students.
All registered participants will receive a Zoom link a few days before the webinar. We invite you to check the spam as well. If you need support with your registration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
