EU-LI-PHE • COST Action CA22112

European Network on Livestock Phenomics

About the Action

EU-LI-PHE will create a Europe-centered multidisciplinary, interconnected and inclusive community of experts in Livestock Phenomics.

EU-LI-PHE will create a Europe-centered multidisciplinary, interconnected and inclusive community of experts that will enhance scientific collaboration, catalyze developments, and transfer livestock phenomics concepts and applications to improve the sustainability and competitiveness of the European livestock production sector.

Meet our Working Groups

The activities of this Action will be carried out within five Working Groups (WGs), each divided into tasks that organize specific activities and produce major deliverables.

Phenotyping Technologies

Main aims: i) Provide an overview of the links between genome/epigenome variation and phenotypic variation at multiple levels in the main livestock species; ii) identify synergies with related initiatives on research needs and provide a road map with a clear trajectory to new applications.

Genome to Phenome Integration

Main aims: i) Provide an overview of current phenotyping technologies and infrastructures that can be used for applications in livestock phenomics; ii) define a roadmap of the research needs to capture high dimensional phenotypic information on an animal-wide scale.

Computational Resources and Methodologies for Data Analyses

Main aims: i) Provide an overview of the computational models, methods and tools available and current and future needs for development of applications in the context of livestock phenomics; ii) identify the needed synergies and developments in terms of cyberinfrastructures and computational capabilities.

Economic Impact, Regulations, Policies, and Society

Main aims: i) Provide an overview on the potential technological and economic impact of livestock phenomics; ii) Summarize the regulatory frameworks around this discipline and evaluate access to information and data generated; iii) Analyze societal perceptions of livestock phenomics. Exchange and collaborations with the other WGs will be essential for the development of the activities in WG4.

Stakeholder Engagement, Communication, and Dissemination

Main aim: i) To ensure a continuous engagement of the stakeholders; ii) To ensure overall communication; iii) To ensure publication of reviews, reports, surveys and establishment of a website and social medias.
