a revolutionary breeding programme
The backbone of this scheme is the creation of a revolutionary breeding programme  that combines selection for a range of production traits with market demands. The ultimate goal is to deliver higher quality breeding animals that require fewer resources.
the role of roslin technologies
Roslin Technologies has an integral role in this scheme through development of a bespoke genetic breeding programme and software tools to optimise selection for breeding. Through statistical analysis of a wealth of economic, phenotypic and genetic data and mathematical simulation, the outputs inform critical decisions to ensure genetic improvement of selected animals into the next decade and beyond.
Improved Diagnosis of Trypanosomiasis in livestock
Trypanosomiasis is an infection caused by microscopic parasites (trypanosomes) that circulate in the blood and are transmitted by flies or in some cases from host to host.
