Research Programs

Many of our animal science faculty hold joint appointments with AgriLife Research, the research arm of the land-grant system in agriculture. These researchers are committed to serving the people of Texas and the world through vital, basic, and applied research in the areas of agriculture, life sciences, and natural resources.

Currently, the Department of Animal Science is researching a variety of projects that cover issues such as animal genomics, meat science, food safety, as well as projects focusing on the major livestock species in Texas. Our research programs focus on applied science, which has an immediate application to Texas animal agriculture, and basic science, which provides the foundation for scientific information to impact further research discoveries.
