Breed4Food STW Partnership

The Breed4Food STW Partnership research projects are:

  • GenoMiX: Utilizing crossbred information to accelerate genetic progress
  • From sequence to phenotype: detecting deleterious variation by prediction of functionality
  • MutaBreed
  • SmartBreed: Smart animal breeding with advanced machine learning
  • TopBreed: Towards Precision Breeding using genomic prediction

Mutual goal is a more sustainable and animal-friendly breeding.

 

In this project we developed statistical genetic methodology to increase the accuracy of genomic prediction for complex phenotypic traits by…
Crossbred performance is the ultimate breeding goal of many livestock breeding programs. At present, however, selection is mainly based on…
To investigate de novo mutations in pigs and to investigate how new mutational variance can be exploited in sustainable breeding…
The past decade has seen a tremendous accumulation of genomic information for livestock species. For the major livestock species chicken,…
Accurate prediction of animals’ future phenotype, especially at an early age, can be beneficial to management decisions and interventions. The…
