Technologies and infrastructure for conservation of indigenous African poultry populations

Culturing and biobanking of cell lines from important indigenous poultry breeds

Precision breeding in poultry

Using gene editing tools to introduce beneficial genetic variants into African poultry genomes

Precision breeding in cattle

Using gene editing tools to introduce beneficial genetic variants into African cattle breeds
