A new EU FP7 project aims to develop genomic tools for breeding against heritable diseases such as osteochondrosis, insect bite hypersensitivity and chronic progressive lymphedemain in horses. The HORSEGENE project brings together researchers from the University of Leuven (Belgium), Animal Health Trust (UK), Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden) and Wageningen University (the Netherlands), as well as representatives of several equine associations, laboratories, studbooks and stud farms.
