QUEZON CITY (ANN) – Animal cloning, anyone?
You can learn about animal cloning in a webinar organized by the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) and the Circulo Argentino de Periodistas Agrarios (Circle of Argentine Agricultural Journalists).
IFAJ made the announcement through its local affiliate, the Philippine Agricultural Journalists (PAJ).
The webinar on Animal Cloning Technology is slated on May 17, 2021.
Prof. Alfred Gabot, past PAJ president and IFAJ Executive Committee member, said that the webinar will be led by Dr. Gabriel Vichera, a biotechnologist and Co-Founder of Kheiron Biotech.
The webinar will be presented in Spanish with simultaneous translation into English.
Cloning technology is a reproductive process that provides a means of producing foals that are a genetic match to top-performing equine athletes. It is the most precise reproductive process ever developed, according to the IFAJ announcement.
Among others, cloning will give you the possibility to:
1. Narrow the nature versus nurture equation by already knowing the exact genetic make-up of the resulting foal.
2. Speed up the embryo production of your top broodmares by cloning your selected best mares.
3. Produce a stallion that is a genetic twin to an exceptional gelding who otherwise never would have passed along his superior genetic. (Agriculture News Network)
