Smart Poster: SERUM MICRORNAs IN BUFFALO COWS: POTENTIAL BIOMARKERS OF PREGNANCY - Micro RNA serici in femmine di bufalo: potenziali biomarker di gravidanza. [Ver. 1.0]
Tesista: Michela Capurro; Relatore: Danilo Zampini; Correlatore: Gabriella Guelfi, aoul Ciappelloni


Reproductive efficiency is the primary factor affecting productivity. Failure to become pregnant leads to a negative impact on reproductive performances in the dairy industry and causes important economic losses by lengthening the interval between services and consequently the unproductive period.
