Project partner Isabel Gimeno, pre-doctoral researcher at SERIDA, presented a poster based on GLOMICAVE research during the 49th Annual Conference of the International Embryo Technology Society (IETS), celebrated on January 16th-19th, 2023 in Lima (Perú).
The conference gathered the scientific and industrial community to further the science of animal embryo technology by promoting more effective research in this field, disseminating and transferring knowledge, maintaining high standards of ethics and establishing synergies.
The poster, entitled “Embryo freezing reduces IGF2 methylation in lymphocites from calves with altered redox status, but normal growth and cytokine gene profiles”, introduces the investigation of the relationship between calf fitness and imprinted developmental genes, and cytokines involved in the calf immune response. Researchers from the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute also contributed to this work.
In particular, the poster is based on results of the business case “Animal reproductive technology – Cattle fertility”, carried out within the framework of GLOMICAVE, aiming to identify and validate different biomarkers predicting pregnancy and birth in cattle.
Moreover, Isabel Gimeno co-chaired the session “All in the details – Molecular prerequisites for the future” on January 18th.
The IETS aims to provide access to the most current research and clinical procedures associated with ovulation, superovulation, embryonic development stages and embryo transfer/cloning, among others.
