Cattle are currently used for meat, milk, hide products and as work animals. Where did they come from? Who are the wild relatives? Dr. Hans Lenstra from the Utrecht University describes the domestication of cattle, their radiation throughout the world, and the traits that humans have selected. We discuss the current state of genomics as well as how genomic selection, artificial insemination and gene editing might influence the future of cattle production. # COLABRA Talking Biotech is brought to you by Colabra – an R&D platform that brings your lab’s world-changing research together in one shared space.
