CTLGH researchers are working to develop a cost effective test to identify breed composition and help dairy farmers across Africa make informed breeding decisions.
Collation and analysis of genomic data from African dairy cows and their international sires will help predict performance traits
A collaboration between CTLGH and numerous African partners has established one of the largest genomic reference resource for African cattle to date.
Research-driven advances in genomic selection will count for little unless they are locally adopted and adapted by livestock breeders and producers.
Advances in genome wide scanning technologies and computational capacity have increased the range of tools available to researchers seeking to detect patterns of single nucleotide polymorphisms…
