Sept. 24, 2019, Chengdu, China — Adisseo METHIOPEDIA conference was successfully held in Sichuan Agricultural University
In 2013, Adisseo published the first edition of METHIOPEDIA, the technical reference book of Methionine. Five years after the release of the first edition, the second edition not only provides a complete introduction to the effective forms of methionine, describing the characteristics of each source, but also incorporates new experimental results and analysis of nutritional and technical aspects. This is the first time the book has been published in Chinese language: 《蛋氨酸百科全书》.
Professor Wu De, vice president of Sichuan Agricultural University, pointed out that METHIOPEDIA is an indispensable reference book for animal nutrition workers, which systematically elaborates the important role of methionine in animal nutrition and the research results.
Professor Wu also introduced that the institute of animal nutrition of Sichuan Agricultural University and Adisseo have a three-year cooperation project. The “nutrition and health research center” built with this collaboration has achieved fruitful results in animal nutrition and health, emissions reduction and alternative feeding with antibiotics, and other fields. He hopes that cooperation can lead to more continuous innovation, to build the model of “industry-university-institute” cooperation and promote the development of internationalization of animal nutrition disciplines.
