Newsletter October 2019


By professor Poul Hyttel

There has been a wish for an EliteOva Newsletter giving regular updates on the project in order to support the common knowledge and team spirit. We have concluded an EliteOva Steering Group Meeting on October 24, and this is the perfect background for starting such a newsletter. This first newsletter is a bit more extensive than what will follow in order to give everybody the necessary background information.

The overall goals of EliteOva are to implement ultrasound-guided ovum pick up (OPU) as well as in vitro production (IVP) and genomic selection of embryos in Danish cattle breeding and to secure that the resulting embryos and calves are healthy and the technologies are embraced by the industry and society. 

In the following, short updates on the status and further plans of each individual work package (WP) is presented.
