International Goat Genome Consortium

Goat breeds, including dairy, meat and fiber breeds, are adapted to a wide range of breeding conditions, and have a large economic impact. Currently, however, they benefit from fewer genomic research tools compared to cattle or sheep. Through the federation of past and future projects, the International Goat Genome Consortium (www.goat.genome.org) aims at the improvement of knowledge of goat genome An update will be made on the projects and results of several international teams will be presented.
