Dott. Riccardo Aleandri

Main goal of the Department is to improve the Italian animal production system. Special attention is paied to sustainability an animal walfare

Main areas of research and experimentation:

  • genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and reproductive technology applied to animal selection;

  • developing chemical, physical, microbiological, biotechnological, and sensorial methods with regard to traceability; optimizing products of animal origin for the purpose of food safety;

  • increasing efficiency in the use of nutrients (N and P in particular) in zootechnical nutrition, by defining more specific requirements, employing modern techniques, and adopting precision nutrition, in order to reduce environmental impact;

  • characterizing quantitative and qualitative elements of traditional production for native breeds, in combination with preservation methods, especially for endangered breeds;

  • adopting cultivation techniques and fodder systems designed to endure climate changes and the decrease of water resources; verifying the effects on the animalsí yield, wellbeing and the quality of products;

  • innovating approaches in the production of biogas through studies concerning the matrices of fermentation, microbial populations, and the impact on land fertility, water quality, and the level of greenhouse gas emissions;

  • supporting the development of animal products from biological agriculture
