CryoBanking of AnGR 2008


Conservation and utilization of animal genetic resources


September 15~19, 2008



This conference will focus on the effective and efficient handling and documentation of animal genetic resources, i.e. DNA, cells and tissues generated from the various activities involved in AnGR conservation, cryobanking, bioutilization and management.


The key objectives of this conference are as follows:

  1. To provide a venue to discuss the status of documentation activities of the various cryobanks of animal and plant genetic resources in the Asian and Pacific region;
  2. To familiarize the participant with various documentation systems available, germplasm documentation, data analysis and information management for animal genetic resources;
  3. To reinforce the capability of participant on conservation banking techniques, cell freezing methods, data processing, genetic analysis and results interpretation;
  4. To provide a venue to discuss and clarify issues concerning international, regional and national laws and policies of relevance to the conservation and management of AnGR;
  5. To increase the knowledge and understanding of participant on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) issues, mechanism of access and benefit sharing governing genetic resources; and
  6. To reinforce the capability of participant in dealing with said issues in relation to Research and Development on AnGR conservation and management.
