With BLUP, CCPS, testing, Genomic Selection and our technology investments we predict the genetic values that breeding animals pass on to their offspring. Our Research & Technology scientists work on quantitative genetics to further improve the way by which multiple measurements are scientifically turned into predictions, all that to get the most out of our MAX'ing Capacity philosophy. Using DNA technology and bio-informatics our Hypor experts can translate massive amounts of lab results of DNA testing into predictions of genetic merit.
Pedigree and performance data of millions of animals are stored centrally with RTC software engineers ensuring the newest features and functionalities in database and data entry technology. Interfacing with sow management systems is carried out worldwide to connect BioHypor clients.
All in all, the Research & Technology Center capitalizes on the synergies of a multi-species breeding company by ensuring the best combination of science and practice.
Hypor is part of a multispecies company and that has many advantages. The genomics laboratory, a leading-class Research & Technology center, has successfully implemented routine DNA extraction to enable execution of the genomic selection program based on their unique pattern of DNA-markers. All DNA samples of the different nucleus farms around the world are shipped and processed centrally within the Research & Technology Center in France.
Genetic progress – advancing the productivity of animals with each generation - is a vital contributor to fulfilling a growing need for food in the world. This, however, requires continual investment in Research, technologies and people. Combining those gives us the power to move fast, efficient and accurate.
