Hi, my name is Sophie Mattalia, from France and I am the leader or the WP3 of RUMIGEN dedicated to the study of tradeoffs in the context of climate change. Within the animal genetics department of Idele (French Livestock Institute), I am at the head of the team dedicated to genetic evaluation of ruminants (bovines, sheep and goats), whose activities cover R&D and services for the industry. During my career, I have worked in many R&D topics dealing with the genetic/genomic evaluations of bovines, with the international evaluations (member of the steering committee of Interbull during 16 years) and with the genetic improvement of new traits, such as health or robustness. My present R&D activities are related to the construction and the management of R&D programs in animal breeding. With Didier Boichard (INRAE) and Sébastien Fritz (Allice), I coordinate the Mixed Unit of Technology (UMT) eBIS, a partnership between our 3 teams recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture and dedicated to our common R&D programs on the genetic improvement of bovines.
