Welcome to Advanced Scientific Group
Advanced Scientific Group (ASG) previously known as Veterinary Research Centre was founded in 1989 by HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler's Representative in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi, and HH Sheikh Hazaa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and the National Security Advisor. The name Advanced Scientific Group was inaugurated in 2009 as an umbrella of Veterinary Research Center, Advanced Genetic Center ,Camel Auction Unit, Camel Breeding and Treatment Unit, and Camel Feed and Pharmacy Unit. It is its prime focus to provide the latest technology in camel breeding, embryo transfer, and camel infertility treatment where the center successfully made more than 7000 embryo transfer babies. ASG also provides camel DNA profiling and parentage analysis. Thanks to their compassion, vision, sound planning, meticulous attention, gracious care and financial and moral support, the ASG is now the largest ultra-modern camel breeding facility in the world. The services of ASG have transcended the local setting to include neighboring GCC countries, and farther afield, wherever the camel is alive and kicking.

Advanced Genetics Centre
In the year 2010, a new department –“Advanced Genetic Centre”- was opened for the general public to benefit from the facility of genotyping and parentage verification of camels, and to get avian sexual identification. By September 2013, more than 5000 camel blood samples have been analyzed for camel genotyping and parentage verification.
Camel Auction Department
ASG pioneered modern camel auctions by organizing the first one in September 2005, at ADIHEX (Abu Dhabi International Hunting Exhibition), Abu Dhabi. Initially, one camels’ auction was held per year, but now two auctions are organized every year, (one in September at the same location every year, and another at Al Wathba Camels Race Track, Abu Dhabi, in March each year).
