Working Group II

Tools, Technologies and Systems Biology


Leader: Prof. Eckhard Wolf


Deputy Leader: Dr. Jean-Pierre Ozil


Aims and objectives

I) To increase knowledge regarding tools and technologies used for characterization of maternal interaction/communication with gametes and embryos.

II) To increase our knowledge base regarding application of “Systems Biology” approaches in the understanding of maternal interactions/communications with gametes and embryos.

III) To develop methods and tools for translation of knowledge gained from the interactome map into improved protocols for the European Animal Breeding and Biotechnology industry.
