Đỗ Đức Lực - K. CN

Objective

Select purebred pig lines (Landrace and Yorkshire) with diarrhea resistant genotypes of FUT1 or MUC4 gene by using molecular marker.

Outputs

1) A nucleus pig herd of 100 sows and 20 boar carry E.coli/ Salmonella resistant genotype with 10% higher of growth rate;

2) The piglets born form the parents that have diarrhea resistant genotype can reduce 35% rate of diarrhea.;

3) 01 PhD, 02 master and 06 bachelor students will be trained;

4) Publish 02 articles;
