FACOLTÀ SCIENZE AGRARIE, ALIMENTARI E AMBIENTALI
ISTITUTO DI ZOOTECNICA
The GEN2PHEN project
GEN2PHEN is investigating the genetic basis and the
biology of i) feed efficiency; ii) stress tolerance; iii)
methane emission and iv) milk fat composition in
dairy cattle.
To accomplish these tasks it considers a set of
biomarkers
known
from
the
literature
to
be
associated to the target traits and dissects them to
assess the genomic, metagenomic, transcriptomic
and epigenomic components. The final aims of the
project are on the one side a better understanding of
the biology of the traits investigated, on the other side
Contacts
to test and optimise biomarkers and genomic tools
potentially useful in selection programs and herd

improving the estimates and better responding to
the demands of farmers and the needs of the
society and markets. However, thanks to a first
Winter School 2014
project (SELMOL) the major national breeding
associations already managed to fit in the most
advanced international levels of molecular genetic
improvement. This project aims at creating an

an extended experimental plan the knowledge
acquired in SELMOL and to create, transfer and
update the methods of genetic improvement using
molecular information.

2014 and is open to fifty (50) international researchers.
Gen2Phen project description and
The Winter School is organized in the framework of the
general introduction
GEN2PHEN project in collaboration with the INNOVAGEN
Project and EAAP.
Lectures will be given by an international team of experts
that will describe and discuss advances in phenotyping
methods, –omic technologies and bioinformatics applied
to the investigation of dairy cow feed efficiency,
environmental impact, interaction between microbes and
the gut and stress driven metabolic diseases.
