The workshop, which was organized by the University of Saskatchewan's One Reproductive Health Research Group, brought together experts from industry, government and the academia from across Canada.
Its aim was to build new collaborations between Canadian researchers, industry and government. Participants worked together to identify the research and technology requirements for strategies to monitor and maintain the genetic diversity of wild and domestic species of Canada.
Overall, the one-day event included information sessions on both basic and applied aspects of reproductive strategies to maintain genetic diversity in domestic and wild species by colleagues from academia, government and industry, and discussion of potential integrated collaborations and training programs.
