Project Details

Description

The aim of this project is to develop methods and knowledge in the areas of conservation genetics, cryobiology and reproduction. New possibilities of whole genome DNA sequencing and SNP genotyping will be applied to conservation genetics to better monitor, manage and conserve genetic diversity and to prevent loss of (rare) alleles during selective breeding. Cryobiology and reproduction research will aim at  improving efficiency and efficacy of cryoconservation strategies for different species and types of reproductive genetic material.
