About FAANG-Europe

Research on domesticated animals has important socio-economic impacts, including underpinning improvements in the livestock sector, contributions to medical research, animal health and welfare, the evolution of domestication and the understanding of natural animal populations.

Although the genomes of the major domesticated animal species have been sequenced, significant investment is now required in order to identify the functional elements within these genomes, especially the regulatory sequences.

This FAANG - Europe COST Action will facilitate the aims of the FAANG project through coordination, development of agreed standards for experiments, data and metadata, training and dissemination of standards and results.
