Published on

National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP), ICAR and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organized a two day workshop on ‘Impact of capacity building programs under NAIP’ on June 6-7, 2014 at AP Shinde Auditorium, NASC Complex, Pusa, New Delhi. The main purpose of the workshop was to present and discuss the findings of the impact evaluation study on capacity building programs under NAIP by IFPRI. The scientists from ICAR and agricultural universities were sent abroad to receive training in specialized research techniques. Post-training, scientists were expected to work on collaborative projects within the ICAR, which would further enrich their knowledge and skills, expand their research network and stimulate them’ to improve their productivity, creativity and quality of their research. The ICAR commissioned with IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute) to undertake an evaluation of these capacity building programs under NAIP in July 2012. The workshop shared the findings on the impact of capacity building programs under NAIP and evolve strategies for future capacity building programs

L. van Hintuma1 a1 Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN), Wageningen University and Research Centre, PO Box 16, NL-6700 AA Wageningen, The Netherlands DNA sequencing as an integral component for generation and conservation of plant genetic resources
  5. 5. Why conserve genomic resources? • Current research generates a lot of genomic resources ▫ Routine cloning experiments ▫ Genome sequencing projects • The genome resources are indispensable tools for post- genomic research ▫ Physiological and morphological characterization of a species, functional analysis of genes, comparative genomics and plant and animal breeding • It is necessary to maintain an efficient system for conservation and management of genomic resources

  9. 9. Other DNA banks world-wide …1 Riken Bio-resource Center DNA Bank Isolation, collection, preservation and distribution of cloned DNA and gene libraries (cDNA and genome libraries) from human and other mammalian cells and from microorganisms (vectors and hosts). The RIKEN DNA Bank undertakes research to ensure the authenticity of the materials in the collection and to improve and standardize the methods of characterization, maintenance, preservation and distribution of genetic resources San Francisco Zoo DNA Bank The Zoo maintains a bank with hair, feather or other tissue samples The Frozen Ark The mission of the Frozen Ark Project is to collect, preserve and store DNA and viable cells from animals in danger of extinction The Ambrose Monell Cryo Collection, New York In the American Museum of Natural History; approximately one million frozen tissue samples representing the DNA of a wide range of species
  10. 10. Other DNA banks world-wide …2 The Animal Gene Storage Resource Centre of Australia To preserve reproductive cells, (semen, embryos, ovaries et cetera) and genetic material in a frozen state, at - 196°C in liquid nitrogen Conservation Genome Resource Bank for Korean Wildlife Tissues, blood, DNA, somatic and germ cells, and semen from mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles including endangered species of Korea San Diego Zoo Conservation by DNA Barcoding for identifying species from unrecognizable samples of blood, bone, meat, hair, feathers, or feces.
