Created by a project of the first Programme Investissements d'Avenir, the CRB-Anim infrastructure aims at integrating and reinforcing the biological resource centers (CRB) conserving reproductive and genomic material for domesticated animal species raised in France, mammals, birds, fish and shellfish.

The CRB-Anim infrastructure associates public research organizations (INRAE, CNRS), higher education institutions (University of Rennes I, AgroParisTech, Ecoles Nationales Vétérinaires, Oniris), a private platform, the company ANTAGENE, which host genomic collections for breeders.

This national infrastructure has 6 nodes located near Paris, Rennes, Nantes, Lyon and Guadeloupe. The BRCs of the infrastructure store approximately 600,000 biological samples (semen, embryos, cells, tissues, DNA, RNA). These nodes are linked to research partners from IFREMER and INSERM, professional breeding organizations, animal insemination centers and National Veterinary Schools.

CRB-Anim répond à deux priorités nationales de recherche et d’innovation en santé, alimentation, bien-être, urgence environnementale pour la préservation de la biodiversité.

The infrastructure responds to two major challenges for science and society:

  • the erosion of biodiversity, in particular in livestock species subject to intensive selection
  • and the rise of genomics, which opens a new era for understanding the relationships between phenotype and genotype and for exploiting the phenotypic wealth resulting from animal domestication.

This research needs access to characterized biological samples and to tools for cryopreserving biological resources.

The infrastructure was built thanks to the "CRB-Anim" project, winner of the "Infrastructures" call for tenders of the "Investissements d'Avenir" program, with a funding of 11 million euros from 2012 to 2022.
