 3rd International Seminar of CRB-Anim infrastructure
The 3rd International Seminar on CRB-Anim Infrastructure showed the contribution of animal biobanks to research in the genetics and physiology of domestic animals as well as the complexity of ethical and societal issues surrounding biological resources.
