Acknowledgement is made to all who contributed to the production of the Animal Genetics Training Resource Version 3. The training resource was produced through a team effort and credit goes to all contributors and collaborating institutions. For authorship for the modules, compendia, case studies, exercises, breed information and examples, due credit is listed within the respective resources. The current version (Version 3) is an update of the version 2, and is based on feedbacks and experiences from users and reviewers of the CD version 2. Further updates and improvements to this resource will be continuously made before future releases, hence the list of main contributors will change accordingly.

The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) launched this project aiming at capacity building of university faculty and other National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) scientists teaching or supervising BSc, MSc and PhD students in Animal Breeding and Genetics in developing countries.
Sweden, through Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency), the Department for Research Cooperation (SAREC), is one of the prominent contributors of core funding to ILRI, which has enabled ILRI to implement this capacity building project. The contribution by Sida is highly acknowledged by ILRI and SLU.
