2017 Interbull Meeting
The 2017 Interbull Annual meeting will be held in Tallin, Estonia from August 25th-27th, in conjunction with the 68th EAAP annual meeting.
The Interbull meeting will be held within walking distance from the EAAP meeting. The venue for the EAAP meeting and joint EAAP-Interbull sessions will be in Solaris Tallinn, located in the heart of Tallinn within walking distance from the city’s best hotels and most iconic sights.
Participation to the 2017 Interbull Annual Meeting requires a separate paid registration fee. Information on how to register, costs and hotel booking are all available through the EAAP website: https://eaap2017.org/
This year's Interbull Open Meetings will include scientific reports related to the following themes in both beef and dairy cattle:
1. Impact of genomic pre-selection on N-GES and I-GES (MACE)
2. Model choice & Validation of GES in the genomic era
3. Integration of new phenotypes/initiatives into (inter)national genetic/genomic evaluations
We aim to accept all relevant and good abstracts for presentations. Depending on the number of abstracts that we receive, some authors may need to be asked to present their paper in poster format. Authors will be informed of this, as soon as possible within 3 weeks of the submission deadline.
The related paper should be written according to the InterBulletin Guidelines which are available here
The paper should be submitted via the Interbull Bulletin.
The themes for the joint sessions for EAAP on Monday 28th August have been set as:
Managing genetic diversity in cattle in the era of genomic selection
Chair: Reinhard Reents
Genomic selection programs can provide greater selection response than traditional pedigree-based breeding programs. This may result in a decrease in diversity/increased rate of inbreeding. However, through the possibility of within-family pre-selection, genomic selection may also provide valuable tools for managing genetic diversity and inbreeding.
Abstracts are invited for submission to this Interbull-EAAP session, which provide assistance to cattle breeders in their quest to try and balance fast genetic progress and maintain genetic diversity.
Genetic defects in cattle – identification, finding the mutation and managing it in breeding plans
Chair: Hossein Jorjani
Recessive genetic defects occur naturally in many species. Such defects may result in minor to severe consequences for an animal’s health and welfare, or even death.
Abstracts are invited for submission to this Interbull-EAAP session, which explore the latest genomic technologies that provide new opportunities in the discovery of genetic defects in cattle, and/or effective ways for animal breeders to manage the prevalence of these defects in breeding plans.
