Genomics Reference Resource for African Cattle

The Genomic Reference Resource for African Cattle (GRRFAC) initiative is aiming at harnessing the genetic resources of indigenous cattle breeds across Africa. These resources are yet to be tapped and are prerequisite for a complete characterization of local breeds diversity towards genetic improvement, contributing to food security and poverty reduction on the continent. This unprecedented research effort is one of the Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health (CTLGH) Dairy Genomics’ project, being achieved through an extensive collaboration of African national partners with ILRI Livestock Genetics program, supported by the Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh (UK), Scotland Rural College (UK), University of Nottingham (UK), ILRI - CAAS Joint Laboratory on Livestock and Forage Genetic Resources (China) and Seoul National University (South Korea).
