The abstract for the International Student Conference organized by the Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences is submitted. Our Students will present “Construction of Bos taurus breed specific reference genomes” study 🙂

WCGALP day 5

The premier event which was the World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production came to the end! Today we had a pleasure to listen to Profesor Gianola lecture titled “Robust alternatives to best linear unbiased prediction of complex traits” during the Theory to Application session. Not less interesting were two other session we participated and there were Molecular Genetics as well as Methods and Tools – Imputation.

 A. Bouwman: Imputation accuracy of whole-genome sequence in pigs

WCGALP day 4

Today Magda had a chance to discuss her CNV project (Copy number variations within and among diverse cattle breeds) with researchers she used to cite in her articles! 🙂

WCGALP day 3

Theta’s projects such as “Assessing DNA sequence features underlying copy number variants” (JS) and “Combining SNP-chip and whole genome sequence data towards the identification of causal mutations underlying feet and leg disorders in cattle” (TS) were presented today. The Molecular Genetics session captured, amog of others, new developments of animal QTLdb and CorrDB databases as well as meta-analysis of genomes. The Plenary Session was about using ancient DNA from commensal animals to reconstruct Pacific prehistory and migration pathways.

WCGALP day 2

Today, many excellent  studies mainly focused on genomic evaluation methods were presented during Models and Computing Strategies session. What’s also interesting for us, Molecular Genetics session included RNA- and DNA-seq of mammals as well as their microbiota.

A. Chamberlain: Identification of regulatory variation in dairy cattle with RNA sequence data

WCGALP? Here we are!

The World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP) has just started. Today we had a pleasure to participate in the session addressing the challenges of genomic selection in international genetic and genomic evalutaions in dairy and beef cattle (Interbull related).

The World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production is coming! It is the premier event for researchers and professionals involved in genetic improvement of livestock. This year the THETA Statistical Genetics Group has a pleasure to present three projects realted to bovine genomics.

Polish Bioinformatics Society Conference

PTBI Conference Organising Committee meeting took place today. We detaily discussed the programme of the conference, keynote speakers lectures order as well as some accommodation and banquet issues.

Students support before and during the conference would be also appreciated (contact: magda.mielczarek@upwr.edu.pl).
