Databases on Animal Genetic Resources

1. AGRI-IS

(ANIMAL GENETIC RESOURCES OF INDIA - INFORMATION SYSTEM)
       An Information System on Animal Genetic Resources of India (AGRI-IS) has been developed at National Bureau of Animal genetic Resources, Karnal, India.
      The AGRI-IS covers all the indigenous breeds of domestic livestock and poultry species from India.. This database contains descriptors of various breeds of livestock and poultry, information on farms, semen production, vaccine production; and district-wise information on population, animal breeding, animal health infrastructure, animal products like milk, meat, egg, wool, etc. It also stores photographs of male and female animals of breeds.

2. DAGRIS

(DOMESTIC ANIMAL GENETIC RESOURCES INFORMATION SYSTEM)
       Information on the extent of existing diversity, characteristics and use of indigenous farm animal genetic resources in developing countries is the basis for their present as well as future sustainable utilization. In view of lack of a systematic database on this information, ILRI has been developing the Domestic Animal Genetic Resources Information System (DAGRIS) as a web-based electronic source of information on selected indigenous farm animal genetic resources. Its current geographic scope is Africa and selected Asian countries with an envisaged future coverage of developing countries in Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean.
       DAGRIS is an information system designed to facilitate the compilation, organization and dissemination of information on the origin, distribution, diversity, present use and status of indigenous farm animal genetic resources from past and present research results in an efficient way. The underlying concept is that such information provides the necessary basis for developing breed improvement as well as conservation programmes.

3. DAD-IS

(DOMESTIC ANIMAL DIVERSITY INFORMATION SYSTEM)
       DAD-IS, developed at FAO is the key communication and information tool for implementing the Global Strategy for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources (AnGR). It is being developed first to assist countries and country networks, and also serves as the virtual structure for the Strategy. It will increasingly provide extensive searchable databases, tools, guidelines, a library, links and contacts.

4. EFABIS

(EUROPEAN FARM ANIMAL BIODIVERSITY INFORMATION SYSTEM)
       Recognizing their common interest in documentation and information of animal genetic resources in Europe and raising awareness on the need for conservation and sustainable use of these resources, ERFP and EAAP have agreed to maintain and update the European Information System for AnGR (EFABIS). EFABIS covers passport, descriptive and performance data as well as population and other data of the animal breeds in Europe.
EFABIS is managed by the regional node manager on behalf of both EAAP and ERFP. EFABIS serves as an impartial platform for the distribution of national data provided by the European National Coordinators or such national nodes as delegated by the National Coordinators for the task of editing and updating national data. EFABIS also serves for the European submission of animal genetic resources data to the FAO Domestic Animal Diversity Information System DAD-IS.
