by G. Ciappesoni

INIA Uruguay participated in the Iberoamerican Researchers’ Night (part of European Researchers’ Night) with the proposal “Spain-Uruguay linked by sheep: from the Adelantados to genomics”. It was an activity aimed at high school students and the general public. This presentation showed some of the genetic and cultural links between both countries with a view from sheep production, with an emphasis in the Basque origins. The current research proposal related to the SMARTER, GrassToGas and RUMIAR projects was also presented. The full presentation can be found on YouTube (more than 500 visits) where there are testimonies from farmers with Images Basques origin telling their family history.
