Excegen Genética

The Excegen Genética (MG) considers a new method of productivity increase in the bovine culture that will be able to represent an annual profit in the order of 150 thousand tons of meat for the Country. The basic way to change the genetic flock constitution, is being promoted by its improvement on the election of animals that will be the parents of the next generation. The genetic merit evaluation of the animals is being held by analysing the external appearance, the individual performance, or mixing models have been used to direct crossings.

These systems are capable of errors on the interpretation and probability, having consequence on the loss of efficiency of the process. The advance on the genetics became possible to pursuit beyond the appearances and searching in the DNA of the animals the necessary information. This new technology calls Election Attended Markers (SAMPlus®). The election of more productive bovines, attended for molecular markers, is an emergent technology, in Brazil and in the world. The Excegen is distinguished as pioneer in this field.

Dreaming with BRICs: The Path to 2050

Over the next 50 years, Brazil, Russia, India and China - the BRIC´s economies - could become a much larger force in the world economy.. If things go right, in less than 40 years, the BRIC´s economies together could be larger than de G6 in US dollar terms. By 2005 they could account for over half the size of the G6. Of the current G6, only the US and Japan may be among the six largest economies in US dollar terms in 2050. (The Economist, Jan. 30, 2005) by Dominic Wilson, Roopa Purushothaman, Goldman Sachs Global Economics Paper No.99, October 2003.
