RUMIGEN aims to provide future breeding goals and programs, innovative genomic prediction methods and precision management tools to optimise long-term genetic improvement and maintenance of genetic diversity in ruminants.Towards these aims, RUMIGEN will ensure engagement of a variety of stakeholders to assess social perception of breeding objectives and related technologies in ruminants. It will define “rooms of acceptance” which will be implemented in sustainable breeding scenarios that will then be assessed through multi-actor panels. It will question trade-offs and pleiotropic effects through adaptation to environmental stressors such as heat stress in cosmopolitan and local dairy cattle breeds. In addition, RUMIGEN will answer questions on genome editing specificity and safety issues, assessing its potential to preserve genetic diversity and increase genetic gains.
