Farm Animal Genetics and Genomics (Genesis) Faraday Partnership - LS1618

Description
The Genesis Faraday Partnership is the result of a bid, led by the Roslin Institute, to the 2002 competition for new Faraday Partnerships. Genesis FP works to improve the co-ordination of the use of genetic and genomic technologies by the livestock breeding and animal health industries.

It will promote and co-ordinate basic research, assist with technology transfer and organise and promote relevant training activities. The results of this activity will be a more sustainable livestock industry with better animal production, health and welfare, together with thriving livestock breeding and animal health companies.
