The animal breeding and genetics sections work to provide new scientific discoveries to age-old livestock production problems to help producers and consumers. Currently, several courses are available to undergraduate students interested in animal breeding and genetics, and both master’s and doctorate degrees are offered in animal breeding.
State of the art research facility
The field of animal breeding and genetics research is more exciting than ever before, with projects such as bovine gene mapping and DNA sequencing. Using state of the art tools and facilities, the researchers at TAMU are able to contribute to the field of animal biotechnology on a worldwide level.
Faculty and staff in the animal breeding and genetics section have access to the latest equipment in our Molecular Genetics Laboratory, housed in the Kleberg Center.
