Abstract

Reproductive technologies are important tools in cattle breeding with Artificial Insemination (AI) used for more than 50 years and Embryo Transfer (ET) used since the mid-1980s. More recently, ET of in vitro produced (IVP) embryos derived from ultrasound-guided collection of oocytes (Ovum Pick-Up, OPU) from superior donor cows has been introduced. This technique is used increasingly worldwide, but there are needs for improved understanding of the biology as well as the associated quantitative genetics in order to exploit the full benefits. The aims of the GIFT project are to form a bridge between embryo technology and genetics/genomics in order to address complex biological mechanisms for OPU-IVP traits as well as heifer pregnancy rates, find key genes and genetic markers, and develop genomic selection programs for identification of superior donors and recipients. The GIFT partners (Brazil and Denmark) represent in collaboration a unique set of competences, which synergistically support each other in strong basic genomics and embryological experiences, extensive practical use of the techniques, access to both beef and dairy cattle and two breeds (Bos taurus and Bos indicus), as well as two environments (tropical and temperate climate). Hence, the GIFT project allows for a novel assessment of biological and genetic dimensions of the OPU-IVP technology in a contemporary breeding context. Overall, the GIFT project combines two practical embryo and genomic technologies to make a direct contribution to quality and quantity of meat and milk produced from cattle and used for human consumption.
