Genomic revolution to hit turbo drive in Sheep CRC extension bid

Thursday 24th of October 2013

The Sheep CRC has applied to the Federal Government for a five-year extension, with its proposal built around three key areas of research: to enhance monitoring and management of sheep wellbeing; to introduce value-based trading of sheepmeat; and to deliver affordable DNA-based genetic tools.

Sheep CRC chief executive James Rowe said full genome sequencing would deliver DNA tests with higher accuracies, extend genomic predictions to a broader range of breeds and lower the cost of maintaining a resource flock.
