Focus on breeding programmes
Roslin Tech offers bespoke breeding programmes for production enhancement.
These include the delivery of database management and estimated genetic/genomic evaluations for the livestock and aquaculture sectors on a range of production parameters.
The global pork market is worth more than $190 billion but suffers from inefficiencies and disease-driven high mortality rates. We work with some of the most respected pig breeders globally to evaluate and improve their stock. Our specialised simulation software uses genetic information and a specialised genetics-based algorithm for selection to improve key traits such as piglet survival and feed efficiency.
Insects are a practical solution to the global protein deficit and have huge potential to provide feed components for livestock and aquaculture. Our investment in portfolio company Protenga, which farms black soldier fly to produce animal feed and fertiliser, has given us access to one of the most innovative insect businesses. As part of our ambitious programme, we are building a bespoke facility, including a genetic nucleus for invertebrates, where we plan to develop black soldier fly lines with particular attributes, such as high reproductive rates and optimal protein and fat content.
