Lunch Symposia




Monday 4 July – 12.00-13.30 | Fluidigm

Design and validation of high-throughput real-time PCR systems for detection of porcine and bovine respiratory and enteric pathogens using the BioMark platform.

Respiratory and enteric diseases in pigs and cattle can have significant negative influence on animal health, welfare and productivity. Pathogen detection using real-time PCR assays performed on traditional platforms are costly and time consuming. To mitigate these limitations, we have designed and developed different high-throughput real-time PCR for detection of respiratory and enteric viral and bacterial pathogens of high importance to Danish pig and cattle production. Want to learn more, please join our lunch meeting.

Tuesday 5 July – 12.00-13.30 | GENUS

A More Sustainable Food System Starts with Better Breeding

In order to supply enough healthy accessible food to sustain societies globally, we must meet the needs of farmers, the food system and ultimately, the consumer. Join Genus for a discussion about new breeding and genetic innovations which can provide solutions to address complex topics like animal, planet and human health.

Bringing animal and plant breeding closer together

During the Bayer Crop Science lunch session, we will present how we have adopted animal breeding theory and practices in our plant breeding programs. Next to this, we aim to discuss opportunities to further bring the disciplines of animal and plant breeding together.
