New European science network on methane challenges and genetics in ruminantsJun 07

A new EU-supported network that aims, among other things, to improve measurements of methane emissions from ruminants is co-chaired by scientists from Aarhus University and Wageningen.

More than 50 scientists from more than 20 countries in Europe have joined forces in a network that will compile the existing knowledge from existing research projects on genetics and methane emissions from ruminants such as cows, goats and sheep.

The METHAGENE project is an EU COST-action project that has just received 4 million Danish kroner from the EU to cover travel costs and network activities. Heading the project is post-doc Jan Lassen from the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Aarhus University and Yvette de Haas -a research colleague from the Wageningen University.
