Abstract

The objective of the researcher's visit will be to implement the modeling of Ca and P minerals to Broiler Growth Model (BGM) and Egg Production Model (EPM) software, which were produced during the thematic project FAPESP Process 2013 / 25761-4. The researcher Marie-Pierre has proven experience in modeling nutritional requirements, specifically modeling the minerals calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P). Therefore, the researcher's visit will be essential to advance the Ca and P models, which is being developed by postdoctoral fellow Dr. Matheus Reis. The research plan attached to this proposal is linked to two research projects, one funded by CAPES that will provide a postdoctoral fellowship for the researcher Matheus Reis who will work together with the researcher to achieve the stated objective and a second research project funded by FAPESP.
