 The mid-term review carried out in 2016 made it possible to summarize the achievements in terms of collection enrichment and technological developments before addressing the prospects for valorisation.

Since 2013, CRB-Anim has collected 140,850 samples from 19 domestic animal species.

In 2016, CRB-Anim extended its scope by integrating the tropical CRB "Carare" located in Guadeloupe. Two CRBs have been certified for the NFS 96-900 standard.
The comparative analysis of operating costs was undertaken with the various CRBs in order to prepare the economic model of the infrastructure.
Technological developments continued on the prediction of seed fertility, the development of new cryopreservation protocols and the improvement of somatic cell reprogramming mechanisms, with several international publications and commercialization leads.
In 2016, a major effort was made on the CRB information system with the preparation of the web portal, which will provide a one-stop shop for requests to enter or leave samples for all domestic animal species. This portal was launched in May 2017 and contributes to the information system of the European IMAGE project.
The evolution of the Nagoya Protocol regulations is a constant concern of CRB-Anim's partners and is integrated into the operation of the portal.
CRB-Anim has launched a call for tenders to support the characterisation of its collections: 13 projects concerning 8 species (bovine, ovine, porcine, dog, cat, trout, perch, chicken) have been supported for a total budget of €510k over 2017-2018.
CRB-Anim is one of the pillars of the RARe National Infrastructure, which brings together all the agronomic resources for research and held its General Assembly in 2016.
