Intro to GplusE

GplusE: Genotype and Environment contributing to the sustainability of dairy cow production systems through the optimal integration of genomic selection and novel management protocols based on the development and exploitation of genomic data and supporting novel phenotyping approaches.

GplusE is an FP7 project funded by the European Union. It is a five-year project which began in January 2014 and was executed by 15 research and industry partners.

The GplusE project formally ended on 31st December 2018. The GplusE community is however still active in finalising, publishing and implementing the results. The present website will still be active and updated until the end of 2020, particularly:
