 Project objective

Laboratorios Dr. Larrasa. S.L is a privately owned biotechnology company founded in 2002. Led by a team of experts in veterinary, genetics and molecular biology (most of them PhDs), the company was born as a veterinary diagnostics laboratory to serve the needs of the farming industry.

The ultimate objective we seek in the SWINE-GEN project is to implement in farms a unique and proprietary technology for improving swine breeding productivity. The core component of our technology is a genetic biochip specifically designed for the analysis in blood samples of those genetic markers that affect swine prolificacy (litter size at birth). Through our technology it will be possible to select the most fertile animals to mate, upon the most accurate information of genetic markers linked to reproductive traits in pigs. In this way, it will be possible to increase the number of piglets per litter in swine breeding (from an average of 9-10 piglets/litter to 11-12 piglets/litter). Moreover, as the selection will be based on genetic markers, it will be possible to stimulate a higher % of inheritance of selected genes from parents to their offspring. Therefore, the solution we propose will allow the improvement of swine breeding productivity generation after generation, having a huge impact on the productivity of the pork industry.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SWINE-GEN" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
