Innovations in Reproductive and Cryopreservation Technologies in Pigs and Cattle

This project is aimed at development of efficacious, efficient, and practical methods for cryopreservation of embryos and ovarian tissue, and of methods for better non-invasive quality assessment of embryos.

The developed methods will be applied by breeding industry partners and gene banks to improve in vitro production and use of embryos, as well as cryopreservation of germplasm for safe, cost-efficient, and animal friendly dissemination of genetic improvement and conservation of genetic diversity.
