The aim of the project is to characterize genomic diversity and inbreeding, within and between Nordic native horse breeds, with special focus on the Norwegian and Swedish breeds. For this we will use whole genome sequencing of individual and pooled DNA samples. Genomic characterization is an essential first step in describing standing genetic variation within breeds to be preserved, and unique variation between breeds. It can further provide knowledge about genomic regions with unique characteristics and diversity, as well as genomic regions where breeds lack variation and are completely inbred. Therefore, this information can be utilized by breed associations to make well informed conservation and breeding plans. Our research also lays the foundation for further research leading to increased positive synergy in the horse sector.

Målet med prosjektet er å karakterisere genomisk mangfold og innavl innenfor og mellom nordiske hesteraser, med spesielt fokus på de norske og svenske rasene. For dette vil vi bruke hel-genom sekvensering av individuelle og grupperte DNA-prøver. Genomisk karakterisering er et viktig første skritt i å dokumentere nåværende genetisk variasjon innen raser som skal bevares, og unik variasjon mellom raser. Det kan videre gi kunnskap om genomiske regioner med unike egenskaper og mangfold, samt genomiske regioner der raser mangler variasjon og er innavlet. Derfor kan denne informasjonen brukes av raseforeninger til å lage godt informerte bevarings- og avlsplaner. Vår forskning legger også grunnlaget for videre forskning som fører til økt positiv synergi i hestesektoren.

Meat

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health threat. The WHO global action plan on AMR mentions LA-MRSA (Livestock-associated Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) that is prevalent in pigs in many countries. The public health threat is generally low but for affected individuals it is a …

Inför ändrad lagstiftning - avvänjning av grisar utan zinkoxid kräver nya strategier
Per Wallgren

Meat

Zinkoxid (ZnO) in feed prevents post weaning diarrhoea (PWD) and mortality in weaned piglets but, for environmental reasons, ZnO will be banned in the EU in 2022 despite that there remain herds that are dependent on the use of ZnO (or antibiotics) at weaning.

By metagenomic analysis (sequencing …

Milk

The ability of milk to coagulate is crucial for cheese production. We have previously shown high occurrence of non-coagulating milk from Swedish Red Dairy cattle and identified milk proteins as potential markers for this undesirable trait. In this project we will increase the understanding of the …
