The regulatory GENomE of SWine and CHicken: functional annotation during development
Company Name INSTITUT NATIONAL DE LA RECHERCHE AGRONOMIQUE
Funded By 38
Country France , Western Europe
Project Value 6 Million
Project Detail

GENE-SWitCH aims to deliver new underpinning knowledge on the functional genomes of two main monogastric farm species (pig and chicken) and to enable immediate translation to the pig and poultry sectors. The activation status of functional genome sequences varies across time and space, and in response to environmental perturbations. In full coordination and synergy with global effort and ongoing projects of the Functional Annotation of ANimal Genomes (FAANG) community, we will characterize the dynamics (“switches”) of the functional genome from embryo (chicken) and fetus (pig) to adult life by targeting a panel of tissues relevant to sustainable production. New expression QTL data in pigs and existing high-resolution QTL data in chicken will be used for developing innovative genomic predictive models that integrate functional annotations, and these models will be validated in commercial pig and poultry populations. In addition, nutritional epigenetic data will allow evaluation of the influence of maternal diet on the epigenome of the pig fetus and whether such effects persist until post-weaning. These open-shared datasets will conform fully with FAANG standards and add valuable knowledge on genetic and epigenetic variation of functional elements to FAANG. A comprehensive plan of dissemination and outreach activities to a large audience of stakeholders will be implemented. The GENE-SWitCH consortium brings together partners representing pan-European excellence (including the academic institutions which pioneered FAANG) and world-leading animal breeding and biotech industry in a true co-creation effort. Overall, GENE-SWitCH will contribute to the global FAANG effort considerably, demonstrate how functional annotation of genomes can foster the advancement of genomic selection for immediate benefit to the breeding industry, and produce cutting-edge research paving the way to new studies and strategies for sustainable productions.

Regulation of Gene Expression by non-canonical poly(A) and poly(U) polymerases
Company Name INSTYTUT BIOCHEMII I BIOFIZYKI POLSKIEJ AKADEMII NAUK
Funded By European Union
Country Poland , Eastern Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

In eukaryotes, almost all RNA molecules are processed at their 3’ ends and most mRNAs are polyadenylated in the nucleus by canonical poly(A) polymerases (PAPs). Recently, several new non-canonical poly(A) (ncPAPs) and poly(U) polymerases (PUPs) have been discovered that have more specific regulatory roles. In contrast to canonical ones, their functions are more diverse; some induce RNA decay while others, especially cytoplasmic ncPAPs, activate translationally dormant deadenylated mRNAs. Knowledge about ncPAPs and PUPs is very scarce and there are crucial questions about their functions that need to be addressed. The project has 3 parts: 1) Functional analysis of FAM46 proteins, which, according to our preliminary data, constitute a new family of active poly(A) polymerases. FAM46C is frequently mutated in myelomas and mutations in its mouse orthologue cause anaemia, thus demonstrating important biological functions of this unexplored family of proteins. 2) Elucidation of the functions of all known vertebrate ncPAPs and PUPs (7 previously known and 4 members of FAM46 family) using the chicken DT40 cell line as a model system. DT40 has an exceptionally high rate of homologous recombination, allowing easy gene targeting and generation of multiple knockouts that facilitate the study of proteins with overlapping functions. 3) Cytoplasmic polyadenylation of dormant mRNA molecules activates translation in neurons, gametes and reticulocytes. In neurons, it occurs in axons and dendrites following synaptic stimulation while in oocytes, it is induced by progesterone. The exact impact on gene expression is not well defined due to a lack of technologies identifying cytoplasmically polyadenylated transcripts. We will develop a novel detection method for ongoing RNA polyadenylation to assess the biological significance of cytoplasmic polyadenylation. This part of the project will be developed using mouse synaptoneurosomes and then transferred to reticulocytes and possibly oocytes.

Eve – From ‘black box’ to yellow box: full insight technology for chicken hatcheries
Company Name IN OVO BV
Funded By European Union
Country Netherlands The , Western Europe
Project Value 71,429
Project Detail

The EU poultry industry produces 6.6 BN chickens a year for meat and egg production. These chickens are hatched in specialized farms called hatcheries. However, 14% of the incubated eggs never hatches and 6.9% of the produced chickens is unmarketable due to deformities or health problems. Hatcheries are a crucial part in the poultry production chain and early days of a chickens’ live. Nevertheless, the incubation of eggs and hatching of chickens is a poorly monitored process, especially in the light of current advances in sensor and internet technologies. In Ovo, a hightech Dutch startup - focusing on improving animal welfare and resource efficiency in the poultry industry - is developing a sensors platform for monitoring the hatching process. With the new platform called Eve, it is for the first time possible to monitor and improve processes in hatcheries by measuring data related to biological processes. By real-time analysis of biological data, it becomes possible to detect flaws and potential problems that until now no one was aware of. Eve is outfitted with cameras and smart sensors for monitoring a large set of biological/microbiological parameters. Early awareness of potential hazards will give breeding specialists in hatcheries the possibility to intervene. This increases production, lowers mortality and morbidity rates and provides higher animal welfare. Research shows a 50% reduction in nonmarketable chicks (improving profitability €375K per hatchery a year), improving resource efficiency (880,000 chicks per hatchery a year) and improving animal welfare (less unnecessary deaths) targeting multiple EU policies, consumer demands and business opportunities. The feasibility study will focus on creation of a business plan. In Ovo was world news when they discovered a novel method to stop the culling of male chicks, won many prizes, has experience with running H2020 projects and is about to get venture capitalists on board (€2MM).

The Genomics of Feralisation
Company Name LINKOPINGS UNIVERSITET
Funded By European union
Country Sweden , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

Feralisation is a complex process that occurs when a domestic population is returned to the wild. It impacts species invasion biology, speciation, conservation and hybridisation and can be thought of as the reverse of domestication. Domestication has been an area of intense interest and study ever since Darwin, and useful as a model for evolution and the effects of strong directional selection. This project will identify underlying genes and mechanisms of trade-offs and adaptations surrounding feralisation, by integrating population genetics, genome-wide association and functional genomics in a parallel (previously developed/established) feral and laboratory chicken system. Despite domestication being used to identify genes affecting a large number of traits that change with selection, almost nothing is known about the genomic changes associated with feralisation. The process of feralisation involves the sudden return of both natural and sexual selection; such forces influencing predatory, foraging and mate choice decisions, exerting strong effects on a once domesticated, now feral, population. As such, feralisation provides a unique opportunity to observe the genomic response to selection from a known (domesticated) standpoint, and identify the genes underlying these selective targets. The combination of feralisation with domestication provides a powerful tool to address a multitude of important questions currently predominating the field of biology. How do gene polymorphisms affect small-scale quantitative variation, particularly in wild population? How does the genome respond to selection, and how can (cryptic) variation be maintained and increased in the face of this selection? What mechanisms underlie gene and organismal trait variation. Feralisation combines the advantages of analysis conducted on natural populations (with the relevance to evolutionary theory and population genetics), with the genetic and genomic resources available to domestic animals.
