Over the next decade , the camel industry will have to compete in a rapidly changing world enviroment arising from increased competitiveness, and increased consumer demands for higher quality, healthier and safer food. To become competitive in this enviroment, the scale and efficiency of production will have to increase significantly. New approaches and technologies will be needed to achieve this . Artificial insemination(AI) and embryo transfer will be central to achieve any development for this wealth.
Therefore, the CRC is designing this project, to improve camel reproduction efficiency through the application of AI and embryo transfer, with particular
reference to establishment of semen and embryos bank from superior camels.
Achievement of excellence in camel reproduction researchers
Achievement of modern technologies in camel reproduction to improve production and reproductive efficiency.
This chair aims to achieve the following objectives:
1-Development of camel wealth through the application of camel reproduction modern technique that would increase production and reproduction efficiency
2-Attracting competent and distinguished scientist to execute the program of the chair, develop scientific research and research studies , beside providing new sources of information to serve application and education.
3-Provision of all facilities to establish a modern research unit (like the lab and embryo and semen freezing unit) and semen cryobanks.
4-Holding workshop, conferences and focusing on training courses in camel reproduction.
1. Application of artificial insemination (A1) and cryobanks
2. Application of Embryo Transfer (ET) technology and camel embryo banks.
