  • Training on “Computational Tools for Animal Genome Resource Data Analysis” under NAIP Subproject “Establishment of National Agricultural Bioinformatics Grid (NABG) in ICAR” was held at ICAR-NBAGR, Karnal from 2nd-13th December 2013. The training was coordinated by Dr. Avnish Kumar and Dr. Karan Veer Singh.
  • The institute has organized ICAR sponsored 10 days short course on “Advanced Molecular and Bioinformatics Approaches for Genome Characterization of Indigenous Animal Genetic Resources” from 01 to 10 December 2014. This course was basically aimed to provide both basic and advance knowledge in the area of animal genetic resources characterization using various genomic and bioinformatic tools. During this course, special emphasis was given on hands-on practical training to make all the participants of this short course well trained with advanced technologies in the field of genome characterization. A total of 21 participants from NAAS System (from ICAR institute and SAUs) and other organizations & general universities working in the area of animal science and biotechnology attended this course.

  • ICAR-National Bureau of Animal genetic Resources, Karnal successfully organized SAARC Regional Training on ‘Molecular Genetic Characterization of Farm Animal Genetic Resources’ during 20-26 April 2015. The training programme was jointly organized by the bureau and SAARC Agriculture Centre, Dhaka with the objective to share our expertise in the field of genetic characterization with neighbor SAARC countries. Total 16 participants imparted in the training programme; one from Bangladesh, two each from Pakistan & the Maldives, three each from Sri Lanka and Nepal and five from India; with different back grounds, including from police forensic labs, academics, researchers.
    Through the training program, the participants were introduced to the FAO recommended guidelines on genetic characterization of farm animals, covering the microsatellite markers and mitochondrial DNA sequence-based genetic characterization, candidate gene analysis, expression profiling, and microarrays. They also learned about the wealth of Animal genetic resources and their attributes, field-based phenotypic characterization work, their registration process and cryopreservation of germplasm for posterity as followed by India. The training program was widely appreciated by the participants as well as SAARC Agriculture Centre, Dhaka and received wider coverage in print media.
