Abstract

This study aims to provide preliminary information on guinea pig production in South Kivu, to reveal the main constraints and possible opportunities for guiding researchers, decision makers or investors to increase cavy's production and productivity in the target region. For achieving this goal,...

Abstract

Cavies (Guinea pigs, Cavia porcellus) are one of the species used as food and nutrition security guarantee for low-income households in many areas of sub-Saharan Africa. This review presents a synthesis of the characteristics of their production systems, their phenotypic and genetic diversity as...

Abstract

Protein supplementation in animal feeding constitute an important production factor. Thus, the supplementation of T. laxum with spirulina on the cavy production performances was study. Sixty females aged between 5 and 6 months with average weigth of 450±50 g were crossed with 8 males for a period...

Abstract

Sequences derived from parvoviruses (family Parvoviridae) are relatively common in animal genomes, but the functional significance of these endogenous parvoviral element (EPV) sequences remains unclear. In this study, we used a combination of in silico and molecular biological approaches to...

Abstract

Odontoameloblastomas (previously incorporated within ameloblastic odontomas) are matrix-producing odontogenic mixed tumors and are closely related in histologic appearance to the 2 other types of matrix-producing odontogenic mixed tumors: odontomas and ameloblastic fibro-odontomas. The presence or...

Abstract

For the first time, the status of cavy culture in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is reviewed with emphasis on Sud-Kivu province. Cavy culture, as discussed in this paper, is the raising, production and utilization of the domestic cavy (i.e., Guineapig, Cavia porcellus) for consumption....
