Development of a new synthetic chinese-european line and research of molecular genetics.

A new synthetic chinese-european line will be selected and developed. A programme of research on molecular genetics will make it possible to identify different genes which can be candidates for the characters of reproduction and meat quality.

Prolificity is one of the main parameters in the profitability of swine production. GENE+ created a new synthetic line by using a Chinese pool of genes and genes of hyperprolificity of European races. The introduction and the use of this line in the plans of crossing must be studied. Can we influence the selection with the innovations of molecular genetics? Keywords: genetic, development, marker.
