Livestock food chain: research and innovation
Across the livestock sector, CIEL-supported multi-sector capability research is finding new ways to feed an ever-growing population. It is supporting the production of affordable, safe, nutritious, high quality food, produced to the highest welfare standards, with the least possible impact on the environment, and helping those who produce and supply food to do so profitably and sustainably. The main areas are across: health and welfare, genetics, behaviour, reproduction and food Integrity.
- Informatics and clinical genome sequencing
- Adopting cutting-edge human health science to develop novel, targeted innovations for the livestock and food sectors
- Characterising nutritional value, food quality, and investigating food fraud.
