Strategies for genetic characterization and conservation, Biology

Strategies for genetic characterization and conservation - During last 20 years concerted efforts have been made to create awareness among all the developmental organizations in the country about the usage of indigenous animal genetic resources by the NBAGR. Various programmes were identified for the evaluation of indigenous animal genetic resources including phenotypic and genetic characterization. Strategies for their conservation and sustainable management were outlined.

Some of these are given here. 

l Identification and listing of all the available animal genetic resources.

l Breed description and characterization to understand their unique qualities and potential contributions.

l Prioritizing the breed for characterization and conservation based on their

population structure, economic utility and genetic diversity.

l Establishment of breed societies for conservation of the breeds in-situ.

l Creation of database on indigenous animal genetic resources.

l Development of technology for collection and freezing
