Introducing the ICARDA-ILRI Training Course on Methods and Approaches on Phenotypic Characterization of Animal Genetic Resources (Goats), Addis Ababa, 20-21 December 2012

  1. 1. Introducing the ICARDA-ILRI TrainingCourse on Methods and Approaches onPhenotypic Characterization of Animal Genetic Resources (Goats) Addis Ababa, 20-21 December 2012 Halima Hassan (ICARDA)
  2. 2. 2 Projects
  3. 3. Project 1: Improving the livelihoods of smallholders through implementation of sustainable small ruminant (goats) improvement programsObjective(s)  Compile the state of knowledge on Ethiopian goat populations to identify traits of economic importance (reproduction, growth, age at maturity, disease and parasites resistances) to be targeted and plan field studies for selecting study regions and goat populations;  Characterize selected Ethiopian goat breeds both at morphological and molecular levels for economic importance traits;  Undertake association mapping to identify diagnostic markers to be used in marker assisted selection (MAS) breeding program;  Strengthen NARS through human resource capacity development for enhancing technology generation and transfer. 3

  5. 5. Project 2: Harnessing genetic diversity forimproving livestock productivity: goatsObjective(s)  Exploration of the goat genetic landscape;  Strengthening national goat breeding programs leveraging  genetic diversity information;  Capacity building, information gathering and sharing.ILRI BecA-HubDuration: 3 years (2012 to2014)Donor: Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida)
