          Introduction

          Welcome to the National Center for Livestock Breeding, Genetics & Genomics (NCLBG&G) at PMAS-Arid Agriculure University, Rawalpindi! The NCLBG&G invites you to get to know our outstanding scientists and academia team to become familiar with our diverse programs in 1. Animal Breeding & Genetics, 2. Genetics and 3. Bioinformatics. The NCLBG&G programs integrate science, practice, and innovation to serve the immediate needs of animal industries. Moreover, our scientists and academia community shape research goals that provide new knowledge and information to confront the challenges in the future. Our commitment is to educate and prepare students for productive and gratifying careers in animal breeding & genetics, veterinary medicine and the diverse areas of animal breeding business and industry. Our faculty, whom are internationally recognized, with expertise in breeding, genetics & genomics, lead instruction, research and outreach programs for farmers and industry. These programs and disciplinary focus areas include dairy cattle, beef cattle, poultry, sheep, goat, camel, donkey, horses, companion animals, and laboratory animals. Graduates of our program are knowledgeable about sustainable animal breeding practices that also ensure animal production, genetic control of diseases and well-being and stewardship of natural resources. Our graduates play key roles in meeting the employment opportunities and needs in all areas of animal science. Our goal is to enrich the lives of humans through animals. If your goal is to work with animals and have a fulfilling career, we can help you achieve your goal.

          Vision statement

          We, the faculty, staff, and students, aspire to be the premier source of:

          • Basic knowledge of genetics and develop students with life skills and knowledge and to engage and serve the public and the people who produce animals and animal products.
          • Professionally trained individuals in animal genetics and animal biology
          • Assistance for producers and agribusinesses for breeding of livestock for sustainable genetic improvement
          • Information to support the contributions of animals to society
          • Knowledge of sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, and
          • Technology to produce desirable, safe, and nutritious animal-derived foods We will achieve this vision through interactive learning, superior scholarship, and client-focused engagement with students, agricultural professionals and consumers.

          Our slogan is:
          CURBING MALNUTRITION AND ALLEVIATING POVERTY THROUGH GENETICALLY IMPROVED, CLIMATICALLY SUSTAINABLE ANIMALS



          Mission statement

          The mission of the NCLBG&G is to use education and technology tool to:

          • Improve food and nutritional security to enhance human well-being through nutritious, desirable, and safe improved animal production by application of breeding and genomics sciences.
          • Reduce the poverty in the country through research in terms of improved genetic potential of indigenous livestock through discovery, development, and dissemination of knowledge related to animal breeding & genetics in genomics era in order to promote economically viable, socially acceptable, and environmentally sustainable systems of breeding and genetic improvement for local livestock species.



          Targeted Impact of NCBLG&G

          • The NCLBG&G will deploy the genomic method to increase genetic gain for milk production in Sahiwal population from 11.3 litres per annum to to 70.18 liters per annum
          • The genomic method is expected to decrease generation interval in cattle from 7.6 year to 3.6 years
          • Cost of proving bull would decrease from 39.64 Mill PKR to 4.67 Mill PKR
          • Genomic technology will be transferred to 75 public or/and private farms
          • This NCLBG&G is expected to boost up the inter-provincial harmony and will also enhance the spirit of nationalism
          • Current efforts of livestock genetic improvement will be uplifted to reach international standards
          • It would help the alleviation of poverty though improving lives by improving livestock
          • Local livestock breeds will survive in improved form
          • Least livestock impact on environment in the form of lesser methane emission by reducing livestock number as result of vertical increase in production instead of horizontal increase
          • It is expected to soften the international image of Pakistan by winning international collaborations with technologically advanced countries on livestock genomic improvement
          • It will be first ever and largest livestock national consortium in the country that is also expected to become the part of international consortiums of livestock genetic & genomic improvement
          • Two new post-graduate degree programs of Bioinformatics and Genetics will be initiated to train human resource for livestock sector; in future an undergraduate program of genetics & genomics may also be initiated by NCLBG&G
          • Current post-graduate annual enrollment is 7 that is expected to enhance to 70 including sub centers
          • Scientific publications are expected to reach 15 per year
          • Sixty students will be given professional trainings on livestock genomics
          • Nine professional trainings and one farmers training workshops are expected to be conducted
          • Four livestock breeds are expected to be characterized
