Ben Jémaâ Slim
Ben Jémaâ SlimGénétique Animalebenjemaaslim@gmail.com
I am a geneticist at Tunisian National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRAT). My main area of study is in molecular genetics applied to livestock breeding and conservation of animal genetic resources. My research is concerned with understanding the genetic basis of production and adaptation traits, mainly in cattle and small ruminant populations. Shedding light on these mechanisms will allow us to develop strategies utilizing marker assisted selection to tackle chronic as well as emerging problems such as low-productivity farms, high inbreeding in some breeds and changing production environment (climate change). I graduated from the National Agronomic Institute of Tunisia (INAT), in 2001. In 2002, I earned a scholarship to attend a molecular genetics training program at the Lazzaro Spallanzani Institute (Rivolta d’Addda, Lombardy, Italy). In 2004, I moved to France to start a European Master in genetics at the University Paris 7 (Denis Diderot). In 2006, I started my PhD studies at “Animal Genetics and Integrative Biology” (GABI) team (Jouy-en-Josas, France) where I conducted genome-wide association tests (using microsatellite markers) to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) involved in female fertility traits in French dairy cattle. In 2012, I joined a permanent full-time position as a research fellow at the laboratory of Animal and Forage Productions (INRAT). Qualifications : • 2009 : Doctor in Philosophy, Doctoral School ABIES, identification of female fertility QTL in French dairy cattle. • 2005 : European Master in Genetics, University Paris 7 (Denis Diderot). • 2001 : Agricultural Engineer (Livestock Production).

In 1998, he earned a PhD in Animal Nutrition from the University of Dijon in France. Along his career as scientist at INRAT (since 1991), Prof. Hichem Ben Salem is in charge of research programs focusing on the potential use of alternative feed resources (fodder shrubs, cactus, range vegetation, crop residues, agro industrial by-products, secondary compounds-containing forages, etc.) in sheep and goat feeding. He also investigated livestock response to different stressors (anti-nutritive factors in the diet, drinking water restriction or salinity, etc.) in terms of digestion, production performance and meat and milk quality. He is also working on the determination of water and carbon footprints of livestock production systems and meat and milk as indicators of the adaptation of livestock production systems to climate change. He coordinated a set of national and international projects funded by different donors (e.g. FAO, IFAD, IAEA, UE, IDRC, etc.). Pr. Ben Salem authored and coauthored around 100 papers published mainly in international peer-reviewed journals and book chapters. He was also an invited editor of several special issues of Elsevier’s journals (Animal Feed Science and Technology and Small Ruminant Research). The H-index of Prof. Hichem Ben Salem is 24 (Scopus database). He is currently the Director General of the Institution of Agricultural Research and Higher Education (IRESA) of Tunisia.

Salah Benyoussef is assistant professor at the laboratory of Animal and Forage Pproduction at the National Institute of Agricultural Research of Tunisia He is an agronomist and specialized in forage crops. He is holder of a Master of Sciences (MSc) on agronomy and plant genetics from National Institute of Agronomy of Tunisia (INAT, 1996). As a plant breeder, He is leading a genetic breeding program through which he has developed some new varieties of barley and triticale intended for forage end-use. A first cultivar of hooded barley is already released in 2009 under the name of ‘’Lemsi’’, two triticale cultivars called ‘’El Khir’’ and ‘’Our’’ were released in 2014 and 2015, respectively. As an agronomist, He is working on agronomic issues related to priority forage species ie (forage cereals, namely barley and triticale and some forage legumes including vetches, sullas, alfalfa, scorpiurus and fenugreek). For each species / variety or cereal-legume mixtures that we aim to promote, our approach is to develop a technical itinerary starting from implementation (plant arrangement), fertilization, study of quantitative and qualitative productivity and ending with optimizing the ways of use (grazing, hay, silage) by ruminants. More recently, he is involved in a research on the integration of forage crops and mixtures under Conservation Agriculture systems. Special interest is given to fodder species that can serve as ground cover while providing ruminant with high quality forage. Much of this pilote phase research is being accomplished at on-farm level in northern Tunisia under semi-arid environments. Along his career, Mr Salah Benyoussef has been a member of several national and international projects funded by different donors (e.g. FAO, IFAD, ICARDA, FARA, GTZ, etc.) and a coordinator of two international projects. He authored and co-authored several national and international papers and thematic factsheets on forage crops.

I am a researcher at the National Institute of Agronomic Research of Tunisia (INRAT), Laboratory of Animal and Forage Production. I obtained my Doctorate degree from University of Sciences of Tunis (Tunisia) in Biological Sciences; I have broad range of interests in Plant Physiology, Applied Ecophysiology and Agriculture. I studied the tolerance of annual Atriplex, especially Atriplex hortensis for the absorption of metals and their suitability for soil remediation polluted by the toxicity of certain mineral elements. I continued my research on the antioxidative and chelating metabolism of the annual Atriplex in order to better understand their physiology and tolerance to the accumulation of metals. I also worked on the effect of salt and water stress on the morphological and physiological responses of Atriplex plants. I have also been involved with many research and development projects as a coordinator, such as the project on the Optimization of perennial grasses to improve forage production in Tunisia. These projects have focused on breeding programs of local forage resource and pastures legumes, especially identification of novel varieties of plants suitable for Tunisia that will address the challenge of climate change and optimization of agricultural practices. I was also junior researcher in the project Ecoplantmed: "Ecological use of native plants for environmental restoration and sustainable development in the Mediterranean region". I have published many scientific papers on the International journals and I have been invited to act as a reviewer for different manuscripts submitted to recognize peer reviewed Journals.
