African Cattle Genomics Exchange


Welcome to the African Cattle Genomics Exchange. This online forum aims to: (1) understand current and future applications of genomic information on cattle in Africa, and (2) determine interest in, and identify key breeds for, a genomics reference resource for cattle in Africa.

Join the discussion now through the ‘discuss-using‘ and ‘discuss-building‘ tabs above.
