CBGW David Chalack Panel

  1. 1. ALMA <br /> Alberta Livestock & Meat Agency Ltd. <br />Canadian Bovine Genomics Workshop<br />September 14, 2009<br />Calgary, Alberta<br />
  2. 2. Canadian Bovine Genomics WorkshopPanel #2<br />September 14, 2009<br />
  3. 3. Facilitating Use And Development of Genomic Tools to Increase Value<br />Increased coordination<br />Need a concerted bovine approach<br />Need clear goals and objectives<br />Genome Alberta<br />Increased Funding<br />Government, industry, producers<br />Need to re-allocate from other programs<br />Hard to find new funds<br />Increased Education<br />Need more global buy-in<br />Need to maximize return from investment<br />
  4. 4. Facilitating Use And Development of Genomic Tools to Increase Value<br />Increased collaboration<br />Across beef breeds and across dairy<br />Across government, university, industry, producers<br />Drive to patent limits global progress<br />Decreased genotyping costs<br />Leads to more users of this technology<br />Leads to more animals genotyped<br />Main driver in increasing accuracy and value<br />Low-density SNP panels<br />Improved SNP technology<br />
  5. 5. Current Genomic ProjectsDairy<br />Genomics has revolutionized genetic selection<br />Canada and USA are leaders in this technology<br />Europe and Oceania is not far behind<br />50K SNP chip is used around the world<br />All selection is based on genomic evaluations<br />Accuracy on young animals has increased 100%<br />30+ traits included<br />30,000 animals genotyped in CAN/USA<br />More animals genotyped = more accuracy<br />
  6. 6. Current Genomic ProjectsDairy<br />Genetic progress will increase SIGNIFICANTLY<br />Much greater than in the past<br />Do we share or protect our genomic advantage?<br />Sharing increases global implementation and gain<br />Protection provides short=term revenue boost <br />
  7. 7. Current Genomic ProjectsBeef<br />Access to same bovine genome info as dairy<br />Yet lagging in implementation<br />Due to less funding, coordination, data<br />More private development<br />Access to phenotypes is key to progress<br />Genotyping is not the limiting factor<br />Currently evaluating potential partners in development<br />
  8. 8. Future Genomic Investments<br />Development of low-density SNP panels<br />Significantly lower cost<br />Lower accuracy<br />eg. 50% of gain for 10% of cost<br />Tailored to specific breeding goals<br />Commercial population application<br />Significantly increase number of animals genotyped<br />Development of higher-density SNP panels<br />From 50K to 1 million + SNPs<br />Similar cost to current 50K price<br />Accuracy approaching that of progeny testing?<br />
  9. 9. Future Genomic Investments<br />Development of national databases<br />Genotypes<br />Phenotypes<br />Additional research & education<br />End-users better understand genomics<br />End-users better utilize genomics<br />
