RÉSUMÉ DU PROJET DE RECHERCHE 

Bull fertility had been decreased recent years ,which caused a huge economic loss for farmers. Present efforts that had been made to increase bull fertility mainly focused on genetic aspects ,epigenetic aspects ,however, had been largely ignored ,we aims to screening the epigenetic biomarker that correlated with bull fertility and daughter fertility ,which could be a complementary for the existing progress of bull fertility improvement. More importantly, these candidate epi-biomarkers could potentially to be used as breeding tools in dairy cow management in the future
