genomics and community-based breeding programs to enhance breeding of goats and sheep in uganda

The project focus is to improve Livestock Productivity through Enhanced Breeding Programs by applying Goat Genomics advances.  The Project include the following activities:

  • Develop goat genome sequence as a research tool/resource
  • Developing tools to characterize breed structure and geographic distribution in caprina genome
  • Develop genotype/phenotype programs for selective breeding
  • Identify teams and methods for implementing breeding
  • Develop a short policy paper that will guide the planning and implementation of the objectives of this research group
  • Collaborate with specialized groups such as international goat genome consortium to develop genomic breeding tools.
  • Use community-based breeding programs to enhance breeding
