CGIL is involved internationally in several ways. Many graduate students that are trained at CGIL are international students. The CGIL Summer Course series has involved international instructors and the participants have also come from all over the world. CGIL will participate in the 7thWCGALP which will be held in France in 2002. CGIL faculty are invited to give presentations in other countries or to participate on consulting teams to advise other countries on breeding issues. CGIL is involved in projects with INTERBULL (Sweden) in dairy cattle breeding. With Dr. John Gibson in Kenya, projects with the International Livestock Research Institute will likely be promoted. Swine genomics work could involve Cotswold Swine Ltd of the UK. With the widespread use of the Internet, it is hard not to be involved with other research groups on an international basis.
