ICAR-National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources (ICAR-NBAGR)
ICAR-National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources, Karnal established in the year 1984 is the nodal organization for identification, evaluation, characterization, conservation and utilization of livestock and poultry genetic resources of the country. The bureau is also engaged in coordination and capacity building in animal genetic resources management and policy issues. Over the years, bureau has conducted systematic surveys to characterise, evaluate and catalogue farm livestock and poultry genetic resources and established their National Data Base. Bureau has travelled a long journey in striving for excellence in innovative research to identify the uniqueness and genetic potential of country’s vastly distributed livestock and poultry biodiversity and its sustainable development.The farm animal genetic resources of India are represented by a broad spectrum of native breeds/strains (202 registered breeds of livestock and poultry, including three dog breeds) of large number of species like cattle, buffalo, sheep, goat, equine, camel, yak, mithun, pig and poultry. The indigenous breeds are well adapted to diverse climatic conditions and perform sustainably even under changing climates over the years. The adaptation to the vivid climatic and traditional management conditions has endowed them with better disease resistance, heat tolerance and feed conversion efficiency. In today’s time, acknowledging the positive and unique attributes of our native germplasm through innovative research is a key for their optimal utilization and long term conservation. The institute is moving forward to decode genome, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome architecture of our invaluable AnGR by utilizing advance omic platforms. In near future, characterizing unique traits and functional properties of milk/meat/urine derived biomolecules from native germplasm will add value and help in their sustainable utilization.
