Biodiversity conservation is a subject in which IMV has a particular interest. Moreover, the study of genes or certain combinations of genes may be very useful in understanding processes that are not fully comprehended today, such as resistance to diseases and stress, adaptation to changing environments and identification of unknown mechanisms.
The responsibility to protect genetic heritage requires proven scientific know-how. IMV Technologies is involved in several research programs, including the conservation of serum and semen from certain strains of cattle, as well as semen from oysters, microalgae, fish varieties, falcon, Siberian crane and wild animals in a South Africa national park.
