  • Genomics refers to the identification of genetic variation relevant to the economic profitability of the livestock industries. It involves the identification of those animals superior in their genetic potential and therefore has utility in both breeding and management. It differs from genetics in that the molecular basis of the variation is sought rather than tracking the traits. The Alberta Centre for Livestock Genomics aims to be a focal point for the development and application of livestock genomics across Alberta and Canada. It will bring together resources to enable the rapid development, evaluation and deployment of genomics based technologies to livestock industries. It will build on the considerable success in the development and commercialization of genomics technologies by the Alberta Bovine Genomics Program over the last decade through the transfer of technology to commercial partners. It will aid in the development of informatics systems which will translate into value chains and enable the industries to gain efficiencies, improve animal health and welfare, better meet customer demands and improve profitability overall.
  • The innovation bridge between discovery and commercial application is often referred to the Valley of Death. Many reasons as to why this is exists have been proposed, however ,the reality is that no universal structure currently exists aimed at this area. Some industries such as oil, IT or plant science are structured in a way that facilitates adoption. In animal industries Dairy stands out as an early adopter, but other industries lag far behind.

  • The Centre aims to bridge the Valley of Death through innovative programs which aid industry in the adoption of new genomics technologies. Genomics can enable the creation of value chains across all livestock sectors to the benefit of the industry as a whole and the individual enterprises comprising the chains. Genomics technologies enable the creation of information on individual animals such as identity, pedigree, performance potential, health risks and response to management such as nutrition of preventative health measures. Such information has value to all members of the chain from breeders through to marketers
  • By enabling new value chains or enhancing existing ones the Centre will help Albertan and Canadian livestock industries build new platforms of competitiveness.
  • The key aspect of this is the bridge by which new technologies will be funnelled towards all levels of industry. The centre will aid industry to see first hand the mechanisms and benefit of technology adoption, thus aiding in the understanding and minimizing the perceived risk of adoption.
  • The Centre will sit firmly between industry needs and solutions, driven by industry for industry. It will bring together all elements of the innovation pathway in a seamless structure driving innovation to adoption.
  • Genomics works. The North American Dairy Industry (including Canada) has adopted Whole Genome Selection using genomics tools pioneered at the University of Alberta and co developed by the USDA, University of Missouri and the University of Alberta. The American Angus Society has just adopted the Merial”Igenity” genomics platform, largely comprising DNA markers developed at the U of A. THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED HERE FIRST! Something the Centre, through partnership with industry can help to correct.

  • The Centre will be a true Pan Alberta, indeed Pan Canadian enterprise. It will work with the best groups in the world and stay ahead of the field.

  • Although a formal Business Plan is one of the first tasks to be carried out, key elements have already been identified. Activities will span the entire spectrum from Innovation through to Commercialization and adoption. It will work with industry for industry. It will lever funds from a wide variety of sources. For example the AAFC Flexibility Fund can be levered through the Province reasserting the importance of Livestock Genomics to their strategy.
  • Specific partnerships will be sought at each level of activity through innovation to technology transfer and commercialization. R&D will continue to lead the world Technology demonstration and translation will involve multiple institutions across Alberta and help train the necessary experts that industry will need in the future Technology transfer and commercialization will be mainly through partnerships and contracts with existing industry players, but in some cases may involve new spin off companies
  • Infrastructure currently available is amongst the best in the world and will continue to be developed. Such facilities will enable cost effective industry involvement in Centre activities, particularly in the areas of demonstration and technology translation
  • We will enhance the skills base in Alberta through key alliances and targeted new appointments. Various agencies will come together in new ways to maximize delivery and ensure accountability. Measures will be taken to ensure cross institutional alignment to maintain focus and momentum

  • The Centre will form a focus of expertise ranging from Genomics and Genetics and including bioinformatics, statistics, meat science, animal health, economics and technology transfer and commercialization.
  • The results will be transferred through development of information pipelines economic assessment Demonstration Leading to industry implementation
  • Ultimately the outcomes will help establish the basis for multiple value chians. The cycle will continue through the Centre responding to market and industry feedback increasing the value back to industry.
  • In summary T he Centre aims to be a conduit through which genomics technologies are delivered to the wider industries. It will do this through developing and evaluating new genomics technologies in response to industry needs. It will provide a Centre through which industry can see the new technologies in action, and evaluate the economic returns of adoption. Ultimately the information created will enhance information flow across industry sectors, providing the basis of industry value chains
