The GLOMICAVE project was included during the session “The origin of life in vitro: see the development of a bovine embryo in a laboratory”, held within the Science Week events organised by SERIDA from November 15th – 20th.
The session was addressed to high school students from Asturias (Spain) and had the objective to explain the in vitro development of an embryo in an attractive, educational and simple way. On the other hand, students participating in the session had the opportunity to participate in a practice activity to discover all the materials used in the research of in vitro embryos development.
The events of the Science Week brought together more than 600 attendees and included a program with variety of activities, such as presentations, visits, workshops and key speeches from SERIDA researchers and professionals. The event had the objective to transfer know how and bring science and research closer to society.
About the animal reproductive technology GLOMICAVE’s business case
The GLOMICAVE business case of cattle fertility aims to promote the identification and validation of different biomarkers predicting pregnancy and birth in cattle in order to increase the knowledge of pathways involved in pregnancy establishing and fertility prediction in cattle embryo transfer. In this sense, the project’s approach can help to develop and identify efficient biomarkers to select competent embryos and recipients in livestock sector, increasing the potential of pregnancy expectation.
