Genomic editing technology increasingly shows potential for improving disease resistance within livestock populations, as researchers in China report success introducing resistance to the CSFV in pigs.
Minnesota producers are considering a new PRRS/PED proposal that will help them learn more about both diseases. It would be a voluntary program in cooperation with the Minnesota Board of Animal Health.
As one of the researchers who helped developed pigs resistant to the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) virus said, "At the very least, the development of PRRS-resistant pigs is a new tool for im
Genomic editing technology such as CRISPR/Cas9 offers tremendous potential for accelerating genetic progress, but a new ruling from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) appears likely to stifle research and development.
Stress is a factor in most professions, but particularly for veterinarians and especially for those just beginning their careers. Here's what to look for, and what to do about it, as the profession responds.
