About The Project: This project aims to establish banks (Gene banks) which preserve animal genetic resources, to start genetic characterization of endemic domestic animal species to use gained knowledge in registration studies, to build a critical mass of researcher capacity in animal genetics and biotechnology areas and to combine and disseminate knowledge. These banks would guarantee our national reserves not only in the next five years, but also in the next century. 1500 animal samples from 5 different species would be preserved.
