Prof. Han Jianlin from the Institute of Animal Science (IAS), Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, visited ABRII on 1st May, 2017.

     He presented his talk entitled “Molecular Insights on the Domestication, Dispersal and Rapid Adaptation of Sheep in Eastern Eurasian”, in the field of genetic structure of Eurasian sheep breeds and its taming process.

     Prof. Han Jianlin started his cooperation with ABRII in 2000, while he joined Kenya Agricultural & Livestock Research Organization, and afterwards, he collaborated in the joint project of FAO and ABRII on the genetic characterization, conservation and improvement of indigenous animal genetic resources in Asia and Africa. Moreover, he expanded this collaboration by becoming the part-time scientific advisory board member of ABRII-North Region Branch.

     According to ILRI official site, he obtained his Ph.D. degree in molecular ecology and ecological genetics from the State Key Laboratory of Arid Agro-Ecology of Lanzhou University in China in 2000. He was awarded several scholarships, which gave him opportunities to visit and/or to work in universities or research institutions in around 40 developed and developing countries. He set up the International Yak Information Centre in 1994, now hosted at GAU, and he is the editor of the International Yak Newsletter. He was the main organizer of the International Congresses on Yak held in Lanzhou (1994), Xining (1997), Lhasa (2000) and Chengdu (2004). His research interests are animal husbandry in extreme ecological environments of the high Hindu Kush Himalayan region and the central Asian steppes (yak) as well as in the low central Asian deserts (Bactrian camel). He has authored more than 140 scientific publications. He joined ILRI in April 2001 to work on the genetic characterization, conservation and improvement of indigenous animal genetic resources in Asia and Africa.
