Improvement of growth and reproduction feed efficiency in prolific species. Genetic determinism of their components and selection strategies

Starting date: 17/09/2015 End date: 16/03/2019
Programme: Animal breeding & genetics

Financing entities:

The overall objective of the project is to increase the depth of knowledge with regard to feed efficiency during different periods of the life of animals from prolific species. The information that would be used come from experiments conducted in pigs, rabbits and mice, which cover the entire lifespan of the animals, from the embryonic development phase until maturity and reproductive periods.
