CRB Anim International Seminar May 11-12, Paris

CRB Anim International seminar

CRB-Anim organises its second international seminar in Paris, May 11-12, at ASIEM amphitheater, 6 Rue Albert de Lapparent, 75007 Paris

Registration is free but mandatory

The CRB-Anim (Biological Resources Center for Domestic Animals) is a national infrastructure funded by the programme ‘Investissements d’avenir of the ‘Agence Nationale de la Recherche’ (ANR, National Agency for Research). Launched in 2013, it brings together and strengthens the operations of the different Biological Resources Centres (BRCs) which collect, store, characterise and distribute reproductive and genomic material sampled from domestic animals. These CRB, true gene banks, are proving to be a major asset for the preservation and management of biodiversity. The main aim of CRB-Anim is to foster research and socioeconomic development through the use of the preserved samples.
