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 the livestock industry to scientists and technicians.
The Webinar series is planned to be organized monthly to inform, update, and 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 17th EAAP Webinar titled Promoting animal health and welfare via pathogens control is organized in collaboration with the EAAP Commission on Animal Health & Welfare. The Commission aims to support scientific debate on issues related to the health and well-being of all livestock species. Animal health and welfare are research themes supported by several underlying veterinary disciplines, such as epidemiology, virology, parasitology and bacteriology, but also scientific domains of ethology, preventive veterinary medicine, and stress physiology. Because of its multispecies nature, the Commission works in strict collaboration with the other study Commissions, organising a number of co-chaired sessions during the EAAP annual meetings.
This webinar is sponsored by Standard BioTools Inc. Population growth, together with climate change and rapid urbanization, is contributing to an ever-changing agricultural landscape. In order to improve animal well-being and productivity with environmentally sustainable practices, scientists worldwide are moving to adopt advanced genomics tools. Standard BioTools develops and manufactures genomic platforms (the X9 Real-Time PCR System), which use integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) that allow for flexible, cost-effective and high-throughput PCR and NGS applications for pathogen detection, breeding programs and animal health.
The first presentation will be given by Christian Ducrot from “INRAE” (France) which will present “Animal health and welfare via pathogens control”. Nicole Bakkegård Goecke from “University of Copenhagen” (Denmark) will then talk about “Design and validation of high-throughput real-time PCR systems for detection of porcine and bovine respiratory and enteric pathogens”.
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 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 your spam as well. If you need support with your registration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
