This project addresses two major societal and scientific challenges:
- the erosion of genetic diversity in domestic populations
- the new era opened by genomics for the understanding of relationships between genotype and phenotype in domestic animals.
To answer these challenges, research programmes need documented biological samples and cryopreservation tools.
Genomic BRCs (GADIE, CaniDNA, Labogena, Antagene) reproductive BRCs (National Cryobank, CERREC) will exchange their knowhow, connect their datas and grow their synergies. The project assemble skills in genetics for animals, molecular biology, phisiology and reproductive biotechnologies.
