The BovReg advisory board member Brenda Murdoch from the University of Idaho has just started an interesting US project on the genome to phenome prediction in agriculture. The project is open to international input and its focus areas are: HT genotyping Workshops Data training It will also combine crop-related project partners and topics with US […]
The Functional Anotation of ANimal Genomes project – FAANG produced a dedicated page to the BovReg project highlighting the publications, specimens and datasets published by BovReg. The BovReg consortium will provide a comprehensive map of functionally active genomic features in cattle and how their (epi)genetic variation in beef and dairy breeds translates into phenotypes. You […]
Registrations are now open for the workshop “Reproducible genomics workflows using Nextflow and nf-core” that will take place remotely November 17h-20h 2020. This workshop, organized by the CRG, will be a great opportunity for the animal genomics community to learn how to implement bioinformatics workflows following best practices in terms of computational reproducibility and interoperability […]
1st BovReg General Assembly was held online on 21st-22nd September! The two-day conference hosted more than 40 participants and scheduled both partners’ updates windows and break-out sessions. Despite the online meeting was successful, BovReg consortium wishes to meet in Europe face to face very soon!
The EAAP Annual Meeting will be held on-line from December 1st to 4th, 2020. We will showcase hundreds hours of programming delivered through plenty of scientific sessions, workshops, plenary sessions, interactive and innovative exhibit hall, live discussions about the latest animal science topics. The Early Registration, before September 15th, is discounted. Those who submitted abstracts for the […]
We often hear about the smart farm where sensors, automated equipment, drones, and other high-tech machinery and software are all connected. What could this “precision agriculture” mean for livestock and genomics? These themes were part of the presentations, Gentec CEO Graham Plastow, who is also a key scientist in the BovReg consortium, gave at The Roslin Institute’s Future […]
BovReg associated researchers at UALBERTA are co-authors of two papers published on BMC Genomics. These two studies represent one of the most comprehensive GWAS analyses in beef cattle in terms of high DNA marker density (7.8M SNPs) and larger sample size (>7500 for feed efficiency) in a single study. Understanding the genetic architecture of major performance […]
