GEroNIMO will provide pig and chicken breeders with new knowledge and tools to promote innovative genome and epigenome-enabled selection methods for Efficient Livestock Production (ELP) traits such as feed efficiency and fertility for cosmopolitan and local breeds. The project will contribute to developing sustainable and welfare-friendly animal systems by improving knowledge of (epi)genome-to-phenome relationships, taking into account genetic and non-genetic mechanisms and epigenetic diversity. It will also evaluate the social acceptance of the use of genomic innovations in monogastric breeding, including related ethical and legal dimensions.
