 4th SABRE Conference Minimize


4th SABRE Conference
Barcelona, 24-27 August 2009



The 4th SABRE Conference was integrated with the 60th Annual Meeting of the European Association for Animal Production (EAAP) in Barcelona from 24-27 August 2009. There were over 1500 delegates at the EAAP 2009 meeting, guaranteeing a broad dissemination of results. From the EAAP’s point of view, the inclusion of the SABRE Conference into EAAP programme added some ‘spice’ to the Genetics sessions. There was one dedicated EADGENE-SABRE session, titled “Molecular tools for disease resistance”, during which the SABRE Work Packages on Gut Health (WP4) and Udder Health (WP5) were addressed. Presentations from other Work Packages were distributed over the 10 other Genetics Sessions. 

The abstracts for the SABRE presentations can now be freely acessed at:
