AI-Vets and ESDAR meetings in Bulgaria

We were invited to deliver a talk at the AI-vets meeting (Albena, Bulgaria) about the importance of sperm chromatin assessment in boar AI centres. We also attended the subsequent European Society for Domestic Animals Reproduction meeting (ESDAR), where we presented two oral communications and six posters. These communications showed not only our research, but also results from collaborations with groups from the UCLM, Oxford University, Chicago Zoological Society, SLU and Linköping University (Sweden). The studies presented as poster or oral communications covered a wide range of topics on animal reproduction, and the plenary presentations dealt with many subjects, from artificial insemination to epigenetics.

Here are the presentations and posters:
