Genomisk kartläggning som redskap för hållbart avelsarbete i inhemska nordiska hästraser

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.

Strukturkalkning – tidpunktens betydelse och de långsiktiga effekterna
Lisbet Norberg

Projektnummer: O-21-23-622 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2021

Crop production

Structure liming on clayey soils (>15% clay) is one of the prioritized measures for mitigation of phosphorous losses to surrounding water. This project increases the knowledge about the effect of structure liming on phosphorous leaching losses on short and long term by investigating the timing and …

Projektnummer: O-21-20-636 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2021

Crop production

Oilseed rape (OSR) is a profitable and important crop in Swedish agriculture, especially winter OSR which is cultivated on approximately 100000 ha each year. Cultivation of OSR relies on large inputs of fertilizers and pesticides, which has economic costs as well as negative environmental impacts. …

Tidig detektion och riktad intervention i svensk hortikultur genom selektiva lockbeten och sensorteknologi
Teun Dekker, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Projektnummer: R-21-25-516 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2021

The rollback of insecticides exposes Swedish horticulture to a multitude of pests. Targeted and sustainable innovations are sorely needed. Here we target several pests of fruits, onion, cabbage, beans and salad and aim to develop 1) species-selective lures using a novel olfactomics platform, 2) use …
