EASTBIO: Annotating transcripts in the new telomere to telomere reference genome for pig

High quality contiguous reference genomes are important resources that can inform farmed animal breeding, health and welfare1. They provide a searchable tool to identify loci that are potential targets for gene editing, genomic selection or novel therapeutics. Read more

Nutritional sensitivity of glucocorticoid dynamics in lean and fat pig breeds

This exciting and unique project addresses the overall hypothesis that lean fast growing pigs have a blunted glucocorticoid (stress hormone) response compared to that of fatter and slower growing pigs in response to a high-calorie diet challenge. Read more

Impacts of larger litter size on robustness and resilience of pigs

Pigs exhibit the most severe naturally occurring intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) among livestock species where there is impaired growth and development of the embryo/foetus or its organs during pregnancy. Read more

However, why only some of these people go on to develop the major metabolic complications of insulin resistance and diabetes is unclear, yet it is these that drive premature disease and death.

Resilient Livestock Farming Systems: Multi-species grassland mixtures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase farming systems capacity to deal with potential climate change impacts

The overall objective of Re-Livestock is to evaluate and mobilize the adoption of innovative practices applied cross-scale (animal, herd, farm, sector and region) to reduce GHG emissions from livestock farming systems and increase their capacity to deal with potential climate change impacts.
