Dairy Genomics

The Dairy Genomics program, in partnership with the African Dairy Genetic Gains project,  facilitates the application of genomics to dairy production in the tropics for increased cattle productivity and a more sustainable environment.

Featured projects

African cattle genomic reference resource

Identifying genome regions underpinning resilience and productivity traits in cattle using signature of selection approaches on full genome sequences

Genomic tools for genetic improvement of smallholder dairy cattle

Delivering genomic tests for breed composition and parentage assignment in a variety of crossbred dairy cattle populations
