Dairy Genomics

The Dairy Genomics programme, 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

Capturing Genetic Diversity in African Livestock

A collaboration between CTLGH and numerous African partners has established one of the largest genomic reference resource for African cattle to date.

Developing Affordable Tests for Breed Composition of Cattle

CTLGH researchers are working to develop a cost effective test to identify breed composition and help dairy farmers across Africa make informed breeding decisions.

Integrating with International Genomic Evaluation Pipelines

Collation and analysis of genomic data from African dairy cows and their international sires will help predict performance traits.
