Project: Typing of Belgian cattlebreeds : identification of individuals and different tissues and their products by genetic DNA-markers.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- Microsatelliteprobes will be developed and evaluated for identification and parentagecontrol in cattle and for certification of their products, from breeder to consumer. Genomic polymorphism in the most important breeds will be determined by PCR and fragmentanalysis. DNA extractionprotocols will be tested and worked out on mainly blood, bloodspots, faeces, milksamples, nasal and oral swabs.
