Cryogenetics AS is partner in a project aiming to improve fertility and sustainable breeding by revealing new phenotypic information on sperm DNA damage and associated epigenetic signatures.
The overall idea of the project is to develop new generic knowledge and technology applicable for routine sperm and semen quality assessment in boar and fish species. The aim is to improve fertility by acquiring knowledge about parameters related to sperm DNA quality, which is considered essential for successful transmission of the paternal genome, fertilization and normal embryo development.
Hedmark University College is the project leader, with Norsvin SA and Cryogenetics AS as partners. The project is funded by Regionalt forskningsfond Innlandet (RFFI), together with Norsvin SA and Cryogenetics AS.
