KOTA KINABALU: Wildlife researchers are hoping to have more success in future captive breeding of the highly-endangered Sumatran rhino after successfully fully sequencing the genome of the animal.

This will enable the scientists to identify the genes causing health issues to rhinos in captivity and preventing them from breeding.
