Gene2Farm objectives

The Gene2Farm project will address the needs of the cattle industry, in particular the SMEs and end users needs for an accessible, robust, adaptable and reliable system to apply the new knowledge of the bovine genome to genetic improvement in cattle, to underpin sustainability and profitability of European cattle farming.

The project general objectives are:

  • to derive complete genome information to understand genome structure and to design high and low density genotyping panels.
  • to develop the tools to impute higher density genome information from lower density genotype data and to make exchange information easier.
  • to address the needs for measuring a wider range of biological variables underlying important commercial traits, in order to provide data on additional important traits for use in selection.
  • to develop appropriate statistical models and applications for using the genomic and  phenotypic information in order to optimise and customise genetic selection strategies.
  • to disseminate the information to the SMEs, the wider cattle breeding industry and to end users.
