Mathematical modelling of the bovine estrous cycle

Description

Bovine fertility is the subject of extensive research in animal sciences, especially because fertility of dairy cows has declined during the last decades. The regulation of estrus is controlled by the complex interplay of various organs and hormones. Mathematical modeling of the involved mechanisms is expected to improve insight in the biological processes underlying the bovine estrous cycle, and could thereby help to find causes of declined fertility in dairy cows. We aim at finding parameterization for individual cows, studying genetic differences, and simulating external effects as food, medication or environment.

Further information is available in the detailed project description.
