India will help Vietnam preserve its domesticated animal gene resources, especially endangered ones, Vietnamese researchers were told last week.

The Indian National Institute of Milk and Vietnam National Institute of Husbandry have agreed to cooperate and share experiences in protecting gene resources of domestic animals.

During a two-week visit to India that ended last Thursday, Vietnamese researchers met with officials from the milk institute and India National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources to discuss measures for preserving bred animal genes, including biotechnological and IT applications.

India is well known for its extensive experience in gene pool resource protection and effective practice in the field.
