Industrial collaboration

For many years, several researchers at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics have been collaborating with the industrial community on various research projects - partly by establishing a specific research collaboration and partly by recruiting an industrial PhD student. Some of these projects can be seen below. Here you can also get good advice if you as a company wish to collaborate with one or more of the department's research groups.

Nordic cattle breeds to be given a genetic boost

The relatively small population sizes of the dairy breeds Jersey and Nordic Red Cattle in the Nordic countries pose challenges in using genomic selection to increase genetic progress. A new scientific project aims at improving the methodology using in genomic prediction. Animal health, welfare and production will benefit.

Developing tools to combat fungi in barley

Fungal contamination of barley crops can cause reduced yields due to the disease leaf spot. A team of Danish and Scottish researchers will now develop tools to breed resistant varieties of barley and provide an early diagnosis of outbreaks so the disease can be reduced or eliminated. The Danish Council for Strategic Research has just granted…
